ITF has closely cooperated with Karlovac County since 2007 when the County donated a portion of its yearly budget for demining through ITF's matching fund mechanism. The result of this direct cooperation is over 840.000 sq. meters of the land cleared of mines in municipalities of Josipdol, Lasinja, Barilobi? and others.
In 2011 ITF contributed to the clearance of 109.282 sq. meters of the valuable arable land in municipality of Generalski Stol where 52 mines and 3 UXO were found and destroyed.
