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) will be 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 will provide 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”.

The NDM-UN meeting this year will take place entirely online.  

We would like to stress that we are deeply committed to diversity and inclusion, and encourage women as well as survivors of mine action incidents to participate. Simultaneous interpretation in the six UN official languages and sign language will be available for all plenaries.
