2010.05 Gender Guidelines for Mine Action Programmes
The guidelines have been developed primarily to help UN mine action field-based personnel and Headquarters staff to mainstream gender considerations and to strive for gender balance in the planning and implementation and evaluation of UN mine action programmes. They are also aimed at national and internation implementing partners, national authorities and other relevant national and international counterparts, including the donor community and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It is hoped that the guidelines will also be of use to other mine action stakeholders, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) and academic institutions. These guidelines are informed by the findings of a number of consultations on good practice and lessons learned in the field, making them more accessible and operational. A Peer Review Group assessed the draft revised guidelines, offering further input and suggestions. Finally, these guidelines are designed to assist mine action programmes and national authorities to fulfil their obligations under UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (31 October 2000), the Department of Peacekeeping Operations/Department of Field Support (DPKO/DFS) Policy Directive on Gender Equality in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, the Millennium Development Goals and other relevant documents including national action plans.
