United Nations Mine Action Service 20 Years

This exhibition celebrates 20 years of mine action carried out by the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS).

The content is displayed on a very large tapestry where the different components of mine action work are highlighted.

The exhibition is organized by the United Nations Mine Action Service in connection with the International Day of Mine Awareness and Mine Action (4 April).
