Demining and EOD Seminar 2021

- September 7-9, 2021- Sarajevo, Bosnia And Herzegowina

Demining operations are still taking place in Bosnia and Herzegovina and neighbouring nations. We are pleased to be bringing our inaugural Demining and EOD Seminar to Sarajevo to review the current situation and the plan for the next few years to finally make Bosnia and Herzegovina a mine free country.

Many IGOs and NGOs are working tirelessly to clear the minefields in the region and there is a key importance on international cooperation in making the world mine clear by 2025.

Technology in demining is also evolving with many new solutions being adopted to clear mines to help lower casualties. Solutions such as robotics and drones are now being used to assist with clearing mine sites especially in areas where it is difficult to detect mines.

Our Demining and EOD Seminar will bring together leading officials who are working on mine clearance in Croatia as well as across the Balkans. You will hear in-depth presentations and case studies from regional Mine Action Centres as well as other international organisations who are supporting local governments to clear the mine fields.
