Global Mapping and Analysis of Anti-vehicle Mine Incidents in 2018

Publisher: GICHD and SIPRI
August, 2019

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 2018. The GICHD and SIPRI recorded 199 incidents in 2018 that were related or suspected to be related to AVMs in 23 states and territories.
