Global Impact of Armed Violence

Armed violence kills more than one person a minute,1 and has displaced as many as 40 million.2 The proportion of the world’s poorest who live in countries highly affected by fragility, conflict and armed violence is increasing rapidly.3 4 Despite this, little is known or compared about armed violence reduction (AVR), existing and proposed AVR projects, local and overseas expenditure and impacts in each country.

AVR Monitor helps countries and communities to advance their AVR work by connecting stakeholders with reliable, attributable and comparable information, data, tools and analysis on armed violence prevention initiatives world-wide.
