Joint launch of SDG16 reports and updated interactive map of violent deaths

In the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Small
Arms Survey is pleased to announce a new series of reports designed to
support global efforts to reach targets under Sustainable Development Goal
16 (SDG16). To promote the sharing of information and encourage
collaboration in this context, the Survey is also providing online access
to its updated database on violent deaths and corresponding interactive

Under SDG16, Target 16.1 commits all states to ‘[s]ignificantly reduce all
forms of violence and related death rates everywhere’. *Monitoring Trends
in Violent Deaths*
the first in a new series of SDG16 reports, establishes a global baseline
of violent deaths for Target 16.1, with the aim of helping states to gauge
changes in the incidence of violent deaths—a composite indicator comprising
data on homicide and direct conflict deaths.

Key findings of this report include the following:

   - In 2010–15, an average of 535,000 people died violently every year.
   This global estimate is higher than the ones for the periods 2004–09 and
   - A growing number of people are dying in conflict: while an annual
   average of 70,000 deaths were recorded in 2007–12, the figure rose to
   90,000 in 2010–15. The armed conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria are
   responsible for a large proportion of these deaths.
   - The global homicide rate is continuing its decrease, but not enough to
   offset the increase in conflict deaths in 2010–15.
   - The vast majority (83 per cent) of victims of fatal armed violence
   lose their lives outside of conflict zones. Direct conflict deaths account
   for the remaining 17 per cent.
   - The global distribution of violence is becoming increasingly unequal:
   fewer countries are registering high violent death rates (above 20 per
   100,000 population), but their average violent death rates are on the rise.
   - In absolute numbers, more lives were lost to violence in 2015 in large
   countries that were not experiencing conflict, such as Brazil and India,
   than in war-torn Syria.

The analysis relies on new data from the Small Arms Survey’s database on
violent deaths. The new data—which includes figures on firearm homicides
and female homicide victims—extends through the end of 2015 or the latest
available year. The updated *database on violent deaths and corresponding
interactive maps and charts
be consulted on the Small Arms Survey’s website.

The next two SDG16 reports will provide in-depth analysis on
firearm-related violent deaths and disaggregation of homicide by sex.
