International Trust Fund

Since its inception in 1998, ITF Enhancing Human Security (formerly known as International Trust Fund for Demining and Mine Victims Assistance 1998-2011) has been developing its mission while expanding the scope and geographic reach of its activities to reflect the changing human security environment. Initially devoted to fund-raising and management of mine action projects in South-eastern Europe, ITF has since gained the trust of the wider donor community and has become a world-renowned humanitarian organization. Building on its successes, ITF has expanded significantly, with operations now active in the southern Caucasus, Central Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. In recognition of the diminishing impact of landmines and unexploded ordnance, ITF is broadening its focus to address other critical security challenges, largely by supporting conventional weapons destruction, security sector reform, and disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration.

Its creation falls within the framework of the new NATO approach to defence spending during austere times called Smart Defence of which Smart Support is a key element.
