About the Centre for Armed Violence Reduction

The AVR Monitor is a programme of the Centre for Armed Violence Reduction (CAVR), an international non-governmental, non-profit organisation. We provide evidence-based research and services to prevent and reduce armed violence as a necessary precondition for effective and sustainable development. Our purpose is to promote public health and safety by encouraging, contributing to and analysing effective armed violence reduction initiatives.

Our work will be alongside governments, development agencies and civil society partners, helping to ensure that AVR measures are evidence-based, impactful and successful. CAVR also seeks to join partnerships on practical AVR, including Conflict, Peace and Security programmes.

The founding partners of CAVR are Act for Peace – International aid agency of the National Council of Churches in Australia and GunPolicy.org, hosted at the Sydney School of Public Health, The University of Sydney.

The founding directors and staff of the AVR Monitor have many years of experience designing and running development programmes around the world (Act for Peace) and AVR research, policy and monitoring tools (GunPolicy.org).

CAVR receives administrative support and start-up funding from Act for Peace, which for more than 60 years has effectively managed large and small grants with partners in the world’s most conflict and violence-affected countries.

A priority of CAVR and the AVR Monitor is to form productive information and practice partnerships across an inclusive spectrum of armed violence prevention advocates and practitioners.
