Reducing armed violence and conflict

Upgrading national arms control systems

Developing Solutions

The Centre for Armed Violence Reduction (CAVR) develops solutions to implement international arms control standards.

As an international non-profit public health group we partner with government agencies, NGOs and technical organisations around the world.


We help countries upgrade their national arms control systems by providing tailored, gap-filling solutions. CAVR enables state agencies to meet global, regional and national arms control standards and to simplify both internal and international reporting.

*ArmsTracker software,  support and future upgrades can be provided at no cost to UN Member States eligible for international donor assistance.

ArmsTracker enables accurate record-keeping and enforcement of weapon regulation in local languages. Each installation is customised for the relevant agency.

With 200,000-plus pages of data and comparative charts, GunPolicy.Org is the world’s most comprehensive online resource for evidence-based firearm injury prevention.

Upgrade provides participating governments with a country-specific information platform, technical assistance, training and legislative reform proposals.
