GICHD - Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining

Welcome to the career site of the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) at Impactpool!

 

The Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) is an expert organisation working to reduce the impact of mines, cluster munitions and other explosive hazards, in close partnership with mine action organisations and other human security actors.

We support the ultimate goals of mine action: saving lives, returning land to productive use and promoting development. Based at the Maison de la paix in Geneva, and founded in 1998, the GICHD employs around 65 staff members from 19 nations. This makes the GICHD a unique and international centre of mine action expertise and knowledge.

Our advisors visit approximately 50 countries per year, while working very closely with partner organisations to achieve our goals. This work is made possible by core contributions, project funding and in-kind support from  30 governments and organisations. The GICHD stays flexible in its response to needs and to changes in its working context.

The GICHD supports national authorities, international and regional organisations and NGOs in their efforts to improve the relevance, performance and sustainability of mine action.

Our advisors visit approximately 50 countries each year and offer remote support, enabling them to tackle explosive hazard contamination safely, effectively and efficiently.

By bringing together experts and practitioners, gathering and sharing knowledge, the GICHD acts as a central reference point in mine action. We promote dialogue between affected countries in local languages, fostering regional cooperation.
