Humanitarian Activities

Under Security Council Resolution 1320 (2000) UNMEE is mandated to coordinate and provide technical assistance for humanitarian mine-action activities in the Temporary Security Zone (TSZ) and areas adjacent to it; and to coordinate the Mission's activities in the TSZ and areas adjacent to it with humanitarian and human rights activities of the United Nations and other organizations in those areas.

The Special Representative of the Secretary-General has oversight of the Humanitarian and Human Rights sections of the Mission as well as the humanitarian mine action activities of the Mine Action Coordination Centre (MACC).

UNMEE liaises with the United Nations humanitarian agencies and the humanitarian community in the Mission Area.
