The Geneva Declaration process is committed to developing indicators to measure the impacts of armed violence on development.


The Geneva Declaration Secretariat supports the establishment of indicators to measure the global burden of armed violence and its impact on human development

Global Burden of Armed Violence

The Global Burden of Armed Violence reports, released in 2008 and 2011, take an integrated, global approach to the dynamics of armed violence and development.

The complex links between armed violence and underdevelopment are becoming better understood.

Country-level research is essential to enhance the understanding of the types, scale, and distribution of armed violence and its negative impact on development.
