IBCL Ban Landmines

Ban Landmines Logo
International Campaign to Ban Landmines

The ICBL calls for:
An international ban on the use, production, stockpiling, and sale, transfer, or export of antipersonnel landmines.

The 1997 treaty banning the use, production, stockpiling, and transfer of antipersonnel landmines has been ratified by 118 countries and signed by 140 . Since the treaty became law, countries may no longer sign it, they must accede. Those countries which have already signed, must still ratify in order to be fully bound by the ban provisions.


International Crisis Group

Logo International Crisis Group
ICG's Nairobi-based team monitors and reports on the fragile peace process in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi, the reconciliation process in Rwanda, and internal and external threats to peace in the Great Lakes and surrounding region.

In Sudan, ICG suggests strategies for peace in what remains one of the world’s longest-running and most destructive wars. In Somalia, political collapse in this failed state has created a power vacuum posing a danger both to Somalis and the outside world.

The risk continues of major violence in Zimbabwe, following the badly flawed 2002 election. ICG analyses both local and regional impacts of the crisis, advancing strategies to prevent further escalation.

With Sierra Leone emerging from its decade-long civil war, ICG Free-Town-based analysts focus closely on developments in Liberia – long a wellspring for instability - and Guinea, and maintain a watching brief on the wider West African region.

Interchurch Organisation for Development Co-operation


ICCO’s roots lie in the Protestant churches and organisations in the Netherlands.

ICCO exposes poverty and injustice, and works on effecting concrete solutions.

Institute for International Cooperation and Development

banner Barcelona

Mission Statement: More than a billion people on Earth live in absolute poverty. Eighty percent of the world's population receives just twenty percent of the total income. This inequality has consequences for us all. It is unacceptable and calls for action. At IICD we organize with local people in developing countries and work side by side with them to develop their communities. We bring back inspiring news about the lives of the world's citizens to share with people in North America. Program description: IICD offers 6-19 month programs to do community development work in Africa, Central America or Brazil. Volunteers spend a preparation period in the US - time that is used for learning the language, history and culture of the destination country, fundraising and engaging in other practical activities. The international period has the volunteers working directly with people from the destination country on any of a number of development projects. A third period, back in the US, gives volunteers the opportunity to make educational presentations and products based on experiences had while abroad. There is a program fee, which covers all basic expenses for the duration of the program.


Fashion model Iman
Fashion model Iman is known for being one of the first people to challenge and change prevailing notions of beauty from the beginning of her career in the 1970's. The daughter of an African diplomat, Iman was born in Somalia on July 25, 1955. She was raised speaking 5 languages, and was a co-ed at Nairobi University working toward her political science degree when well-known photographer Peter Beard spotted her walking across campus. Her first modeling assignment was for American Vogue in 1976. Iman was an instant success in the fashion world, becoming a muse for several fashion designers including Yves St. Laurent, Versace, Calvin Klein, and Donna Karan. In addition to running two successful beauty companies, Iman is actively involved in several charities, including Mother's Voices, Action Against Hunger, The Children's Defense Fund, and The All Children Foundation. She recently completed her first book, I AM IMAN (Universe, 2001), an autobiographical sketchbook of her working life that provokes questions about "the unserious business of fashion and beauty, and it's serious effect on identity".

IMF International Monetary Fund
The IMF is an international organization of 184 member countries.

Flag Ivory Coast / Côte dÍvoire

Although it is one of the smallest countries of Africa, the Côte d'Ivoire is a country of extraordinary cultural richness. While the southern coastal area has for the last several decades served as an archetype of prosperity and modernisation, the northern and western regions of the Côte d'Ivoire are home to two fascinating and vital traditional cultures-the Senufo and the Dan.
