Thematic Panel on Achieving Completion by 2025 - An innovative approach proposed by the Chilean presidency during the 2016 Intersessional Meeting.
The Convention's Intersessional Meetings concluded 20 May in Geneva with the participation of hundreds of representatives from States, international and non-governmental organizations.

Juan Carlos has for the past 10 years supported individual States Parties with mine clearance implementation-related matters.
For the past year, Juan Carlos also worked as the unit's interim director.
