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 for better management of weapons, ammunition, explosives, and armed incidents. Our not-for-profit organisation partners with government agencies, NGOs, and technical organisations around the world. CAVR helps countries to upgrade their national arms control systems with tailored, gap-filling solutions.

ArmsTracker weapon and ammunition management (WAM) and armed incident reporting (AIM) systems, training, support, and upgrades can be provided at no cost to UN Member States eligible for Official Development Assistance. We are grateful to the donors who make this possible.

Our weapons, ammunition and explosives management solutions are individually tailored to military, law enforcement, border control, national small arms commissions—in fact any state agency whose role includes the security and storage of arms and munitions.

CAVR enables state agencies to meet global, regional, and national arms control standards and to simplify both internal and international reporting.

ArmsTracker has been configured in local languages and individually tailored for state agencies in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Small Island Developing States

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