New initiative measuring violent deaths worldwide

SIPRI has set up a new initiative aimed at establishing the annual number of violent deaths worldwide. The Global Registry of Violent Deaths (GReVD) will count deaths caused by all forms of violence and display these in an open-source database, which will allow researchers, policymakers and the general public to track trends in violence at global, regional, national, provincial, city and municipal levels.
