As a not-for-profit charity, the Centre for Armed Violence Reduction has implemented national and regional armed violence reduction projects with more than 30 governments. Although the reach of our publications and advice is global, the Centre has focussed to date on low income countries in the Pacific, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia, adapting instruments of international arms control to suit their local context.

To encourage regional and international co-operation in armed violence prevention, the Centre coordinates with Nonviolence International, the Caribbean Community, the United Nations Regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Asia and the Pacific, Control Arms and others to design, host and assist with national and regional programmes across the Indo-Pacific and Caribbean regions. CAVR workshops provide states with an understanding of global arms control norms, gap analysis, sources of funding, capacity-building and legislative assistance, implementation and reporting.
