Mine Free Myanmar [MFM, formerly named Halt Mine Use in Burma] was launched in 2004 as a country focused campaign of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL).

Since that time it has taken on many activities, including organizing side events at meeting of States Parties to the Mine Ban Treaty, undertaking briefing for diplomatic personnel in both Yangon and Bangkok. These activities have been carried out by a variety of activists from regional ICBL country campaigns, and activists in Myanmar.

MFM publishes the Landmine Monitor profile as a country report in both Burmese and English every year, and organizes a press conference to disseminate its findings. MFM also prints and distributes a limited number of hard copies of the report to government officials, UN Agencies and INGO and local NGOs in Myanmar.

This website is aimed at an international audience and seeks to provide regularly updated information regarding efforts to achieve a landmine ban in Myanmar, or Burma as it is also known.

The ICBL is a global network in over 90 countries that works for a world free of antipersonnel landmines, where landmine 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. Since then, we have been advocating for the words of the treaty to become a reality, demonstrating on a daily basis that civil society has the power to change the world.

As of 1 January 2024, 164 countries, over 80% of the world’s governments, have ratified or acceded to the Mine Ban Treaty. Myanmar/Burma is not one of them.
