Sharp drop in landmine casualties; but international funding for remaining mine clearance declines
(Washington DC, USA, 3 December 2014): Fewer people were killed and injured by landmines in 2013 than in any previous year, and nearly all use and production of the weapon has ceased, said the latest annual report of the Nobel Prize-winning International Campaign to Ban Landmines. Landmine Monitor 2014 was released on the seventeenth anniversary of the signing of the Mine Ban Treaty.
Dramatic drop in landmine casualties, lives saved as clearance and funding reach new peaks; yet antipersonnel mine use by Yemen and a small number of states and armed groups must be urgently addressed
(Geneva, 28 November 2013): Records were set in 2012 for the lowest number of new reported casualties, largest amount of landmine-contaminated land cleared, and highest level of global funding for mine action, according to Landmine Monitor 2013, the latest annual report of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, released today in Geneva.
(3 June 2013) The Mine Ban Treaty Intersessional Standing Committee (ISC) Meetings that took place last week opened with disturbing news of credible reports which, if confirmed, would constitute the most serious violation the treaty has ever confronted: extensive use of antipersonnel mines by government forces in Yemen, as reported by ICBL member HRW, and Foreign Policy Magazine.
- A total of 5,197 new casualties from
mines, explosive remnants of war (ERW) and victim-activated improvised
explosive devices (IEDs) were recorded in 75 countries and other areas
in 2008. This included 1,266 people killed and 3,891 injured; the status
of the remaining 40 casualties is unknown.
- Males (boys and men) comprised 91% of all casualties where gender details were known, while females (girls and women) accounted for 9%.
- In 2008, civilians accounted for nearly two-thirds (61%) of recorded casualties.
Belgrade, 4 October 2007 - Cluster bomb survivors gathered in Serbia this week to ensure their rights were at the heart of international efforts to ban the weapon by 2008.
Twenty-two of the 26 affected states participated in the Belgrade Conference of States Affected by Cluster Munitions, the latest development in the Oslo Process for a new treaty banning these weapons, which has gathered the support of 82 countries in just seven months.
