This Issue Brief provides an overview of the humanitarian impact linked to the use of anti-vehicle mines and the challenges related to the clearance of this category of weapon.

It is intended to promote informed discussion on MOTAPM (Mines Other Than Anti-Personnel Mines) and highlights the need for further strengthening the legal framework governing the use of anti-vehicle mines in order to effectively reduce and prevent the humanitarian impact of these devices, enhance the work of post-conflict mine clearance operations and accelerate development and reconstruction.
