The Global Registry of Violent Deaths (GReVD) website launches today and can be reached at:  www.grevd.org.

The GReVD website acts as a resource hub for information about the GReVD initiative, data and estimates on violent deaths and will include the GReVD database itself. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) and the Brookings Institution convene the consortium on behalf of partners. Currently, the GReVD website contains general information about the initiative including profiles of consortium members. The website also maintains a resources section which contains short briefs that introduce GReVD and the methodological hurdles faced by the initiative.

About the Global Registry of Violent Deaths

GReVD will be a database of every violent death coded by time and location. The primary use of the registry will be monitoring and counting violent deaths as an important part of monitoring global violence trends and reaching Sustainable Development Target 16.1, ‘significantly reduce all forms of violence and related death rates everywhere’. GReVD is supported by funding from the Swedish Postcode Foundation. Research on the Gaps Report was funded with UK aid from the UK government.
