The plan was officially launched in March 2018. It links to the National Mine Action Strategy (NMAS) and sets out goals aiming to ensure that men and women participate, contribute and benefit from mine action and that their needs and concerns are addressed through researches, planning and prioritization for clearance, victim assistance and mine risk education activities. CMAA’s internal gender group was established with members from different CMAA’s department.
