Approximately 31,000 square meters of agricultural land in Novoselije was demined as part of a HRK 256,000 project, removing sixteen landmines in the area.
As part of this demining project, the U.S. Government partnered with the local community to additionally provide for community spaces available to the public, especially for kids.
The United States is the world’s leading donor for humanitarian demining, having contributed more than $4 billion globally to conventional weapons destruction efforts since 1993. The United States Government donated more than $30 million in Croatia in support of humanitarian demining. These funds have resulted in the clearance of over 3,500 landmines and other unexploded ordnances in Croatia.
