“Promoting enhanced human security in countries affected by landmines/Explosive Remnants of War and other impacts of conflict.”
The mission of ITF is to enhance safety as well as to enable the recovery and development of conflict affected countries by addressing the immediate and long-term impact of mine/ERW and other hazards following armed violence. A human security approach is applied to all ITF interventions as it provides a dynamic and practical policy framework for addressing widespread and cross-cutting threats. This human security approach supports the linkages between humanitarian mine action and arms surplus reduction, as well as the nexus between security and development. It also upholds the development of essential preconditions, capabilities and capacities that pave the way to comprehensive development, and facilitate full national ownership and accountability in conflict affected countries.
