The Virus, Violence, Climate Change
and Social Disruption

The work of our Centre is both reinforced and accelerated by the effects of COVID-19. Our focus now is to lessen the risk of violence due to social upheaval. ArmsTracker has moved to remote delivery, so we’re not disadvantaged by lockdowns at our end. Let’s work together.

Reduce armed violence and
control arms at no net cost*


The ArmsTracker Solution

ArmsTracker fills long-standing gaps in national arms and ammunition control. Secure and easy to use, it enables accurate record-keeping and enforcement of weapon laws in local languages. Available only to relevant government agencies in eligible UN Member States, this simple but powerful software computerises arms and ammunition storage, record-keeping and destruction, imports and exports, gun owner licensing and firearm registration.

Each installation is tailor-made for the relevant government agency to enforce national and regional laws and to complement existing systems. Consultation, customisation and installation is followed by staff and community training.

ArmsTracker evolves and improves as each new government agency installs its own customised version, so far across Africa and the Pacific. Join the ArmsTracker Community to take advantage of International Assistance donors, and to fund an upgrade of your national or regional arms control system.

* ArmsTracker software,  support and future upgrades can be provided at no cost to agencies of UN Member States eligible for international donor assistance.

Features

ArmsTracker can meet your arms and ammunition management needs in record-keeping; licensing and registration; stockpile management and destruction; import, export and brokering control; one-touch reporting; identification and tracing; illicit arms seizure and hot-spot mapping; system security and many other features in development.

Agencies

ArmsTracker can assist your agency
to control arms and to reduce armed violence. Each version of ArmsTracker is custom-built for Police, Customs, Military, Executive and other branches of government, along with reporting agencies like Foreign Affairs. ArmsTracker can also allow citizens to anonymously report illicit arms.

Community

Interested in joining the ArmsTracker Community? We welcome a wide range of officials and agencies who are keen to keep up to date, share information, review version upgrades and suggest improvements or additional features. ArmsTracker is designed by world experts, but we need community and industry feedback to get it right.

>500,000

people are killed directly in armed violence each year, according to the Global Burden of Armed Violence. Many more are killed indirectly as a result of armed conflict.

31%

of the world’s population do not feel safe walking alone where they live, according to the Gallup World Poll. Fear of armed violence is high in many countries, and reducing this is a target of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

80%

of the world’s poorest will be living in fragile, conflict and violence-affected countries by 2030 if no action is taken, according to the OECD. Action must include effective arms control.
