Welcome to the United Nations


In 2018, UNMAS convened, coordinated and led the drafting of the United Nations Mine Action Strategy 2019-2023 with the Inter-Agency Coordination Group on Mine Action, which is comprised of 12 United Nations entities. Please click here for the brochure version and here for the full version of the Strategy.

The Strategy’s Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Mechanism is managed by UNMAS on behalf of the IACG-MA; the results of this data collection and analysis is available via an interactive dashboard and annual reports which provide more in-depth context and analysis.

FAQs on the Strategy

What does this Strategy mean for the United Nations?

The Strategy represents an accountability framework for the United Nations system and introduces a Theory of Change for the United Nations engagement in mine action. A reinforced Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) mechanism regularly reports on UN contributions for which it is mandated and responsible, ensuring collective accountability at headquarters and at country level.

How was it developed?

Following five months of extensive consultation and collaboration involving over 300 stakeholders, the Strategy was  endorsed by the Principals of the Inter-Agency Coordination Group on Mine Action (IACG-MA) on 4 December 2018. The result is a practical, needs-driven, people-centred and resource-efficient document with clear goals and indicators by which progress, and results may be evaluated. The Strategy is also an excellent example of enhanced coherence on the UN approach to mine action.
