The United Nations supports mine action in 40 countries and three territories. In some cases, UN services may be limited to one aspect of mine action—such as mine-risk education or victim assistance. In other places, the United Nations may be involved in every aspect of mine action, from clearing landmines to destroying stockpiled ones. The extent of the United Nations' involvement depends on the scope of the problem, the amount of assistance requested by national governments, and on any special circumstances, such as large-scale movement of refugee populations or the need to deliver relief supplies to isolated mine-affected communities.
