GMAP 2 aims to make 150 km2 land safe across 16 countries, enabling 800,000 people to live their lives free from the threat of mines and helping 100,000 adults and children to understand the dangers of landmines. Landmines and explosive remnants of war provide both humanitarian and development challenges: they endanger lives and livelihoods.
Itad is supporting the three-year delivery of GMAP2 through project monitoring, a formative and summative evaluation and a research project. This builds on the previous contract Itad had for GMAP1.
Our monitoring activities ensure the accountable delivery of GMAP2 and make sure that activities stay on track and that any delivery challenges are handled swiftly. Our evaluation activities provide DFID with insights into how the programme is performing and recommendations to DFID on how to make sure their mine action budget has the greatest possible positive impact. Our research project is exploring how new technologies involving geographic information systems and satellite imagery could help the whole mine action sector to generate more evidence of its impact.
