What we do

Our mission is to lead the effort to protect lives and restore livelihoods for those affected by conflict.

We continue to play a major part in removing landmines, but we are also increasing our role dealing with the broader debris of war – small arms, improvised explosive devices and unexploded ordnance.

We are engaged with humanitarian demining in 25 countries and territories and we have a growing portfolio of programmes delivering weapons and ammunition management, including weapons disposal, ammunition disposal and physical security and stockpile management.

In our work to make people and places safe we embed ourselves in local communities, build capacity and work closely with local and national governments as well as aid and development partners. 

We create safe and secure environments, offer opportunities to rebuild lives and livelihoods, and prepare the way for development and long term stability.
