The Necessity for Demining Action
Each year, over 5000 people fall victim to the accidents caused due to landmines and ERW shells scattered throughout the world’s former and current war zones.
There is a huge need for demining activities to be carried out globally; it has been recorded that over 1 million people have been killed or maimed due to the planting of active landmines. During the Second World War, it is estimated that over 60 million landmines, which may be anti-personnel mine or anti-tank mine were planted by the military forces to avoid enemy infiltration. It is assessed that over 60 to 80 million landmines are still in active position & planted and still waiting to lame or kill someone throughout the globe.
Demining action has gained traction since 2000 and many private organizations as well as non-profit organizations have been actively participating to remove and destroy such explosive remnants of war (ERW).
Occurrence of landmines are of serious concern in many countries such as Afghanistan, Croatia, Cambodia, Vietnam, and several African and European countries. There are numerous organizations and foundations, such as the United Nations, that sponsor expenses so that the area becomes mine free and can be used for residential, commercial, or industrial purposes. This opportunity is expected to create surge in demand of motors for robot body and robot wheels market.
