SOURCE: The Landmine Contamination, Casualties and Clearance provides country level data on a broad range of issues related to landmines and cluster munitions, including contamination, casualties and clearance, and their associated cost. The data was compiled from two sources: Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor and annual surveys by the United Nations Mine Action Team (UNMAT).

Risk education is information about the dangers of mines/cluster munition remnants/other ERW intended to protect people from their effects.

Explosive remnants of war (ERW) means unexploded ordnance (UXO) and abandoned explosive ordnance (AXO).

Unexploded ordnance (UXO) refers to munitions that were designed to explode but for some reason failed to detonate when used.

Abandoned explosive ordnance (AXO) is explosive ordnance that has not been used during an armed conflict, which has been left behind or dumped by a party to an armed conflict, and which is no longer under its control. Abandoned explosive ordnance is included under the broader category of explosive remnants of war.
