National Mine Action Standards (NMAS) Development - 98th Partnership for Peace Course

Within the framework of the PfP Partnership Work Programme, the Swiss Government, through the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (DDPS), has the honour to invite qualified representatives of National Mine Action Authorities (NMAAs) and Mine Action organisations to the “NMAS Development” training course.

This five-day intensive course aims to further strengthen the relationships between key overarching principles of land release, all reasonable effort, risk management, quality management and information management for the development of national standards. These are the key areas to improve safety, efficiency, effectiveness and quality, thereby ensuring confidence in mine action outputs.

The training is aimed at mine action staff and practitioners from affected countries, responsible for the development of NMAS, managers of MA agencies, as well as officials from donor countries, and other participants as specifically selected by the Swiss Ministry of Defence and the GICHD.

NOTE: The training course is subject to the final budget availability. Everyone interested in the training course is welcomed to apply by the deadline of  05th April 2024. However, all applicants are kindly requested not to proceed with any logistical arrangements before the final confirmation is received from the GICHD.
