Launch of the SDG16 report 'Firearms and Violent Deaths'

In the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Small
Arms Survey has launched 'Firearms and Violent Deaths', the second in a
series of three reports designed to support global efforts to reach targets
under Sustainable Development Goal 16 (SDG16). The 2030 Agenda explicitly
links arms, violence, and sustainable development, while SDG16 includes
global commitments to significantly reduce ‘all forms of violence and
related death rates’ (Target 16.1) as well as illicit arms flows (Target
16.4) by 2030.

The new report analyses trends in firearm-related violent deaths in both
conflict and non-conflict situations. 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 maps.

Key findings of this report include the following:

   - Globally, firearms were used in an estimated 46 per cent of all
   violent deaths in 2010–15 – resulting in an average of 214,000 deaths per
   year. Specifically, they were used in 50 per cent of homicides and 32 per
   cent of conflict deaths.
   - The use of firearms in lethal violence is particularly prevalent in
   the Americas, as well as Southern Africa and Southern Europe. In most
   regions, the proportion of violent deaths that involved firearms was fairly
   stable from 2007–12 to 2010–15, although averages decreased in the
   Caribbean and increased in Southern Africa.
   - National time-series data reveals differing patterns in Albania and
   Croatia. In Albania, firearm and non-firearm violent deaths have risen and
   fallen in parallel, suggesting that they are both influenced by common
   factors. In Croatia, the rate of firearm homicide decreased by 70 per cent
   between 2006 and 2013, independently of the rate of non-firearm homicide,
   which remained relatively stable.
   - Efforts are required to improve the availability and quality of data
   on firearm deaths, particularly in Africa, Asia, and Oceania.

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 third report in the SDG16 series will provide in-depth analysis on
disaggregation of violent deaths by sex.
