Welcome to the United Nations

24th International Meeting of Mine Action National Directors and United Nations Advisers

The 24th International Meeting of Mine Action National Directors and United Nations Advisers (NDM-UN) was held from 25 to 27 May 2021. UNMAS would like to thank the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany for the generous contribution making this event possible.

The meeting, held entirely online due to COVID-19, provided an opportunity for the mine action community to reconnect, share knowledge and enhance the collective capacity to address old and new challenges under the overarching theme of “Perseverance, Partnership, Progress”. Simultaneous interpretation in the six UN official languages was available for all plenaries.

About 1,200 people from over 105 countries and territories attended the event. To read the full recap report, click here.
