About Us

Mine Action Review conducts the primary research and analysis on landmine and cluster munition remnant contamination, survey, and clearance worldwide, with a view to monitoring and furthering full implementation of the clearance obligations of the Anti-personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC) and the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM).

Mine Action Review collates and analyses mine action data globally from mine action centres, national authorities, clearance operators, and other implementing partners such as the United Nations (UN) and the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD).

Mine Action Review produces two annual reports, ‘Clearing the Mines’ and ‘Clearing Cluster Munition Remnants’, which include individual country profiles, for every state and other area affected by anti-personnel mines and/or cluster munition remnants.

These reports provide information on contamination and progress in clearance in all affected states, and, for States Parties to the APMBC and CCM, an analysis and scoring of national mine action programme performance and recommendations for action. Our aim is for the Mine Action Review reports to be used as an implementation tool for the sector, to help overcome challenges and enable states to reach completion of their clearance obligations as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Supported and published by Norwegian People's Aid (NPA), as an independent project, Mine Action Review is funded by Global Affairs Canada, the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. The HALO Trust, Mines Advisory Group (MAG), and NPA are on the project's Advisory Board.
