Landmines and the cluster munitions still kill or maim civilians every day in an indiscriminate manner even long after conflicts are over. At the current rate of clearance of about 500,000 mines per year and assuming no additional mines are laid from now on, it could still take hundreds of years to find and clear all the landmines around the world.D-BOX will tackle the burning issue of anti-person ...
