This is a first-of-its-kind study that comprehensively maps the sustainable development outcomes of mine action activities in Jordan, using the SDGs as an analytical framework. The research analyses the impact of land release, victim assistance, explosive ordnance risk education (EORE), gender mainstreaming, and partnerships and cooperation towards the overarching principle of ‘leaving no one behind’. The findings demonstrate how various efforts undertaken in mine action directly contributed to more than sixty targets of the Sustainable Development Goals, promoting the three core elements behind sustainable development: economic growth, social inclusion, and environmental protection.

There is a full section that focuses on the direct contributions of gender mainstreaming in mine action to the SDGs. Moreover, in order to ensure that the overarching principle of "leaving no one behind" is upheld, gender mainstreaming as an approach needs to be implemented and monitored in all mine action programmes, projects, and activities.

The study was conducted by the GICHD, with support from the National Committee for Demining and Rehabilitation (NCDR) and UNDP.
