UNMACA Mission

To support the government of Afghanistan to protect its people, deliver national plans and implement relevant international treaties through; coordinating the most efficient and effective mine action response to the problems caused by landmines and ERW; managing the national mine action database; ensuring the quality of mine action and mobilizing  the required resources.


Afghanistan freed of all known landmine/ERW contamination by March 2023 and UNMACA incorporated into government able to respond to residual risk so that all Afghans live in a safe environment conducive to development and where the rights of persons with disabilities, including landmine/ERW survivors, are promoted.
