The 24th annual Landmine Monitor report provides a global overview of efforts to universalize and fully implement the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty, ensure clearance of mine contaminated areas, deliver risk education to affected communities, and assist victims of these weapons.
The year 2022 marks 25 years since the adoption and opening for signature of the Mine Ban Treaty and 30 years since the creation of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL). Since then, the treaty has established a strong international framework for the elimination of antipersonnel landmines and has contributed to remarkable results in protecting lives and livelihoods. Landmine Monitor 2022 tracks the progress made and remaining challenges in achieving the treaty’s ultimate objective of a mine-free world.
The report documents recent use and covers mine ban policy, including the status of production, trade, and stockpiling globally. It assesses the impact of mine contamination and casualties, and progress made in clearance, risk education, and victim assistance. Lastly, it outlines global trends in international assistance to mine action as well as available national resources. This report focuses on calendar year 2021, with information included up to October 2022 where possible.
