Global Mine Action Programme 2

UK Department for International Development

The UK has had an historic role in tackling the legacy of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW). We were one of the founding signatories to the Land Mine Ban Treaty in 1997. In the 20 years since then, the UK has supported some of the poorest countries around the world to clear landmines and ERW after conflict, building up considerable knowledge and experience in the mine action sector. UK funding for mine action saves lives, releases land for productive use and helps pave the way for further development programming. Through land mine and ERW clearance, mine risk education activities and capacity development of national and provincial authorities this programme will increase stability and security for people in countries affected by landmines and ERW.

Strengthening UN Conflict Prevention, Mediation and Peacebuilding Capabilities 2016-20

UK Department for International Development

To improve the UN’s capacity to respond to crises quickly to prevent them from worsening; to support the UN to build sustainable peace in countries emerging from conflict and to prevent conflict; and to incentivise the pillars of the UN to work together to achieve global peacebuilding objectives. This in turn will deliver improved outcomes for poor and displaced people living in fragile and conflict-affected countries - protecting people caught up in the middle of conflicts, helping communities build peaceful resolutions and supporting communities to live together after conflicts. The direct impact on poor people is expected to include: • reduced number of people displaced by conflict; • reduced conflict related deaths; and • improved economic opportunities for poor people. This programme will deliver support to the UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF), the UN Department of Political Affairs (DPA), and the Joint UNDP-DPA Programme on Building National Capacities for Conflict Prevention.
