Welcome to the United Nations

25th International Meeting of Mine Action National Directors and United Nations Advisers

The 25th International Meeting of Mine Action National Directors and United Nations Advisers (NDM-UN25) took place from 23 to 24 June 2022 at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) premises in Geneva. UNMAS, on behalf of the United Nations Inter-Agency Coordination Group on Mine Action, would like to thank the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs for its generous contribution that made the event possible. We are grateful to the GICHD for its support, especially for coordinating the sponsorship programme of the meeting.

The meeting provided an opportunity for mine action leaders to meet in-person for two days of meaningful exchanges and purposeful networking with a view to addressing the challenges facing the mine action sector under the overarching theme: “Safe Ground, Safe Steps, Safe Home”.

Following the APMBC Intersessional Meetings (20-22 June) also at WIPO, NDM-UN25 was an in-person gathering with some sessions accessible online.
