According to the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD), a mine risk education (MRE) project should achieve the following:

  • Provide information, assurance and encouragement required to encourage mine-safe behaviour.
  • Identify and promote model mine-safe behaviour.
  • Teach essential skills and ensure that beneficiaries can utilise these skills.
  • Provide a social environment that supports mine-safe behaviour.
  • Provide ongoing encouragement to sustain mine-safe behaviour.
  • Encourage beneficiaries to transfer knowledge and information to others.
