The International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) is a global network in over 70 countries that works for a world free of antipersonnel landmines and cluster munitions, where landmine and cluster munition survivors can lead fulfilling lives. The Campaign was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of its efforts to bring about the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty.
The CMC is a network of around 200 civil society organisations, including NGOs, faith-based groups and professional organisations. It includes global organisations like Handicap International, the International Campaign to Ban Landmines and Human Rights Watch, as well as national-based organisations such as the Lebanon Landmine Resource Centre, Protection in Egypt and the Swedish Peace and Arbitration Society.

Landmine Action works to save lives and livelihoods through the elimination of landmines and other explosive remnants of war (ERW).
Helping to fight a continuing threat
* Landmines and ERW cause deaths and injuries to people as they attempt to carry out their everyday activities.
* They deny communities access to their most vital resources,to grazing and arable land, to water sources and sanitation, to health care and education.
* They deny movement and block infrastructure, leaving communities socially and economically isolated.
* They inhibit post-conflict reconstruction.
Mines contaminate more than 80 nations, many of them the world’s poorest. Despite the presence of international legislation to ban the landmine, many mines remain in the ground or in stockpiles and 42 countries have yet to sign up to the legislation; these include the US, Russia, China, Pakistan, Finland, Sri Lanka and India.
Roots of Peace works to unearth dangerous landmines in war-torn countries and empower the local communities scarred by these inhumane weapons. Working to build sustainable crops on land once too dangerous to traverse is how we transform the scars of conflict into the roots of peace.
Youth Against Landmines is an organization of dedicated, passionate students committed to the eradication of the terrible man-made epidemic of landmines. Through the creation of an interactive website, we plan to proactively unify and organize youth landmine groups throughout Canada as “member groups” and establish a platform from which they can directly work towards the removal of minefields via the United Nations program Adopt-a-Minefield®. It is our promise to develop and administer this interactive website, equipped with a wide variety of features aimed at producing an online community of progressive youth for the ultimate purpose of collective, organized action.
Our safety guides are strict, thoroughly documented and internationally recognized. Latest technologies and security measures guarantee the highest degree of safety for our deminers and for the population returning to areas we have cleared.
It is our goal, as far as is humanly possible, to clear mined areas of all mines and other dangerous residue of war. Internal and external quality controls are built into the set procedures of all our operations,
The US Campaign to Ban Landmines (USCBL) is a coalition of thousands of organizations and people working to:
* Ban further US use, production, and export of anti-personnel landmines and cluster bombs.
* Encourage the US to join the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty and the cluster bomb treaty being negotiated in 2008.
* Get high levels of US government support for demining and assistance programs for victims of landmines, cluster bombs, and other unexploded remnants of war.
The USCBL is one of 90 country campaigns that comprise the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL)—winner of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize.
The USCBL is also part of the global Cluster Munition Coalition, working for a strong treaty to ban use of cluster munitions that cause unacceptable harm to civilians.
No More Landmines is a UK based charity that raises funds to free communities throughout the world from the threat of unexploded weapons of war.
