Keep up to date with the Centre’s arms control and armed violence reduction news.
We all have a right to live free from fear and want, yet each day as many as 1,400 people die in lethal violence.  The Centre promotes public health measures to reduce and prevent death, injury and trauma resulting from the proliferation and misuse of small arms and light weapons.
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.
CAVR also hosts the secretariat for the Pacific Small Arms Action Group (PSAAG), a Pacific-based coalition of governments, NGOs, international bodies and other stakeholders, committed to reducing the threat of armed violence in the Pacific.
