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?
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.
