The Centre has implemented global, multi-country and bilateral programmes on arms control and armed violence reduction with more than 30 governments in the Pacific, Southeast Asia and the Caribbean.

As secretariat of the Pacific Small Arms Action Group (PSAAG), CAVR hosts the network of civil society groups promoting the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), the UN small arms Programme of Action (UNPoA) and associated instruments among 20 nations of the Pacific. This programme of work is supported by the United Nations Trust Facility Supporting Cooperation on Arms Regulation (UNSCAR), among others.
