Offered by Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland (MFA) announces a Call for Proposals for International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs) concerning support in the field of humanitarian mine action for the period of 2021 - 2025.
Finland’s humanitarian mine action employs a comprehensive approach that contributes to wider efforts to promote global security, stability and development. Fragile states and fragile contexts are the focus of Finland’s humanitarian mine action efforts. The goal is to support and strengthen long-term security and development in the supported areas. Supporting local communities through partnerships and employment, promotion of gender equality and a human rights based approach are essential in Finland’s approach.
Humanitarian mine action comprises five pillars: mine clearance, mine risk education, victim assistance, stockpile destruction and advocacy. In addition to these five pillars, local capacity building is important. Finland’s comprehensive approach to mine action emphasises the importance of context specific analysis and combining several pillars of action in accordance with the needs at hand.
