Why gender and diversity

matter in mine action

Mine action does not happen in a vacuum. It takes place in a context where there are differences and inequalities between women, men, boys and girls in responsibilities assigned, activities undertaken, access to and control over resources, as well as decision-making opportunities.

GMAP has put together a timeline documenting the past 20 years of mine action from a gender perspective.
These milestones include the most visible as well as the least visible aspects of the inclusion of gender and diversity in the field of mine action.


GMAP would like to thank its donors for all their support in promoting gender and diversity in mine action.
