A call for humanitarian disarmament
Armed violence and insecurity have a profound impact on the lives of millions of people around the globe. It is time to act and to renew global efforts for humanitarian disarmament.
MUNICH – Between 2007 and 2012 more than 2.5 million people died violently. Countless others were injured and traumatised and this is only the direct impact of violence.
In September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals were adopted to create a global agenda for change, stressing in target number 16 the need to assist conflict-affected countries in their struggle to reduce armed violence.
It is time to act and to renew global efforts for humanitarian disarmament!
