Issue: Many vineyards were abandoned during the war as they were riddled with landmines, leaving the farmers returning to their communities unable to make a decent living.

Solution: We facilitated the removal of landmines clearing over 500,000 square meters of land and helped reestablish vineyards using modern techniques with farmers from 8 wine growing regions.

Impact: Croatia is now mine-free with the exception of a nature preserve in a remote part of the country and the wine industry has now fully rebounded.
