Explode Project Launched
Explosive ordnance and remnants of war destruction (EXPLODE) project was officially launched on June 27, 2013 in Doboj. The 3,837,830 Euro project that will run until 2015 is financed by the European Union and implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Defense of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the United Nations Development Programme and the OSCE Mission to BiH.
Today, there are over 17,000 tons of military ammunition surpluses in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The risk of uncontrolled explosion of much of this stock is high, which represents a constant danger to civilians living in the proximity of the storage sites and to the soldiers who are guarding them.
