How can humanitarian mine action help to support the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals?
Join us for a virtual side event on mine action and the SDGs in the context of the Anti-personnel Mine Ban Convention 18th Meeting of the States Parties.
The GICHD reviewed the links between mine action and the SDGs back in 2017, recommending that further mapping was critical. We will discuss what still needs to be done, including how to measure mine action outcomes against the SDGs and focusing on environmental protection. Experience from outside mine action will be shared to understand the challenges in meeting SDG targets, build collaboration and drive action across organisations.
