The need for systematic data collection on anti-vehicle mine (AVM) incidents was first recognised during joint research by the GICHD and SIPRI for a study on the humanitarian and developmental impact of anti-vehicle mines published in October 2014. As a response, both organizations have been collecting global data on AVM incidents since 2015 with a view to improving evidence on and identifying trends in AVM impact. Data is available on interactive and regularly updated online maps.
This report presents and analyses AVM incident data from 2016. The GICHD and SIPRI recorded 181 incidents in 2016 that were related or suspected to be related to AVMs in 22 states and territories. This represents a minor increase compared to 2015, when 178 incidents were recorded in 25 states and territories.
