In 2015, 178 incidents related, or suspected to be related, to anti-vehicle mines (AVMs) in 25 states and territories were recorded by Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) and the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). These incidents caused 598 casualties (278 dead and 320 injured) of which 60 per cent were civilians. While AVM casualties were recorded in some post-conflict situations, the vast majority occurred in current conflicts. Mali, Pakistan, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen accounted for the highest numbers of casualties.
This report analyses disaggregated AVM incident data collected in 2015, which are also displayed on an interactive online map. It follows up on a comprehensive study on the humanitarian and developmental impact of AVMs carried out by both organisations in 2014. This report is a further step in developing robust evidence on the impact of AVMs.
