About Geneva Declaration Secretariat

The Geneva Declaration on Armed Violence and Development was adopted by 42 states at the conclusion of the ministerial summit held in June 2007. Recognizing that the fight against the global scourge of armed violence and the prospects for sustainable development are closely linked, the participants agreed in particular to strengthen their efforts to integrate armed violence reduction and conflict prevention programmes into national, regional and multilateral development frameworks and strategies, as well as into humanitarian assistance, emergency and crisis management initiatives.
