Montenegro had a mine and unexploded ordnance problem on border areas with Croatia and Albania. There were certain minefields around border crossing Debeli Brijeg and Ravni Brijeg on the south state border between Montenegro and Croatia. Other suspected areas were located in municipalities Plav and Rožaje on the border between Montenegro and Albania.
Montenegro still faces contamination from unexploded sub-munitions and underwater explosive remnants of WW II located of shore. There is significant amount of aged, unstable, deteriorated and for other reasons unserviceable ammunition in Montenegro. Ammunition surplus poses hazard to the local population and is seeking to be demilitarized.
What we do
ITF has been active in the field of mine action in Montenegro supporting its Mine Action and Conventional Weapons Destruction program since 2002. Currently, ITF is aiming to re-start its activities in Montenegro in cooperation with relevant national authorities and identified needs.
