UNICEF Mine Action Strategy, 2006-2009

UNICEF seeks to integrate a gender dimension in all its mine action work, as well as supporting the overall integration of gender dimensions into mine action programming. They note that landmines and ERW prevent women from exercising human rights and fundamental freedoms and will work to support their protection from the effects of armed violence, specifically as it related to landmines and ERW and weapons that have indiscriminate effects. They will support monitoring of compliance with treaty obligations as they relate to women and children, support research on the impact of armed violence on women and children and ensure that men, women, boys and girls are represented in planning and implementation processes.
