In June 2018, Action on Armed Violence (AOAV) recorded 2,461 deaths and injuries from 257 incidents of explosive violence around the world, as reported in English-language media. Civilians accounted for 67% (1,641) of the deaths and injuries recorded.
When explosive violence was used in populated areas, 89% of all casualties were civilians, compared to 15% in other areas.
Dr James Kearney, Advocacy Director
At the end of 2017, AOAV travelled to Mozambique where we interviewed victims of landmines from Ethiopia, Mozambique and Uganda in an attempt to answer the question: ‘when the landmines are gone, what challenges remain for those who have been maimed by them?’ This is a record of their testimonies.

Of all explosive weapons used, the IED is the most widespread, the most harmful and the most pernicious. Based on the belief that to overcome a problem, we must first understand it, this monitor is a small step in seeking to address the terrible realities of today.
It is a monitor that is, also, a response to a call to action.
