  • OECD–DAC: Investing in Security: A Global Assessment of Armed Violence Reduction Initiatives, Conflict and Fragility
    This publication seeks to generate more understanding of what kind of AVR initiatives work and what kind does not, to stimulate further evaluation and to contribute to more effective and efficient policies and programs. A large-scale mapping of Armed Violence Reduction and Prevention activities around the world form the basis of the analysis, focusing primarily on programming trends in six countries – Brazil, Burundi, Colombia, Liberia, South Africa and Timor-Leste. These countries represent the very different programming contexts – from high rates of urban criminal violence to protracted post-conflict insecurity – in which development practitioners are currently engaged.
