Our work

The APPG on Landmines was launched at a reception in the House of Commons hosted by the chair of the group on 26th January 2012, and was well attended by Parliamentarians, commercial supporters and landmine clearance operators and the media.

Engagement with external organisations
The APPG will work with the principal government departments (FCO, DFID and MoD), NGOs and the corporate sector.

The administration of the group will be managed by the secretariat provided by Nigel Ellway BA FRSA MCIPR with support of Action on Armed Violence and the Counter-IED Report.

The Group is part of the coalition of APPGs on International Development and works closely with the Inter-Parliamentary Union and the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and has, and will continue to have, joint meetings on broader international development issues.

When appropriate, meetings can be held in partnership with other All Party Groups, such as those representing the interests of countries particularly affected by explosive weapons of conflict.
