Short Description:

Overall goal

Das Sponsorship Programm des Genfer Zentrums für humanitäre Entminung (GICHD) ermöglicht seit dem Jahr 2000 die Teilnahme von Delegierten an Intersessionals und Vertragsstaatenkonferenzen zur Implementierung des Ottawa-Übereinkommens. Durch den österreichischen Beitrag wird sichergestellt, dass die mit der Minenproblematik sowie der Implementierung der Konvention tatsächlich befassten ExpertInnen, die in erster Linie aus durch die Minenproblematik betroffenen Ländern kommen, an diesen Treffen teilnehmen können.

Die Teilnahme an den Treffen ermöglicht den Delegierten einen Informations- und Meinungsaustausch über den Stand der Implementierung der Ottawa-Konvention, sowie Kontakte zwischen Delegierten von von Landminen betroffenen Staaten, Geberstaaten, NGOs und Internationalen Organisationen. Die dadurch entstehende Dynamik hat in zahlreichen Staaten zu grossen Fortschritten bei der Implementierung der Konvention beigetragen.
