Even 25 years after the end of war, more than six million square meters of land in the territory of the City of Sarajevo were contaminated with landmines and unexploded ordinance left over from the war. A US-funded mine clearance project which started in 2019 is now being brought to a successful end. This means that the entire territory of the City of Sarajevo including all municipalities and the mountains surrounding the city will be safe for citizens.

Some two million land mines were scattered throughout the country during the 1992-1995 war. Thousands of people were killed or seriously injured in explosions since the war ended.
The current size of mine suspected area in Bosnia and Herzegovina is 965 square kilometres or 1.97 % in relation to the total country size.

USA is the leading donor for mine clearing projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
