The Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) works towards reducing risk to communities caused by explosive ordnance, with a focus on landmines, cluster munitions and ammunition stockpiles.
The Centre helps develop and professionalise the sector for the benefit of its partners: National and local authorities, donors, the United Nations, other international and regional organisations, non-governmental organisations, commercial companies and academia. It does so by combining four lines of service: field support focused on advice and training, multilateral work focused on norms and standards, research and development focused on cutting-edge solutions, and facilitating dialogue and cooperation.
Collectively, our advisors support around 40 affected states and territories every year, while working very closely with partner organisations to achieve our goals. This work is made possible by core contributions, project funding and in-kind support from 30 governments and organisations. The GICHD stays flexible in its response to needs and to changes in its working context.
