The Liberian Armed Violence Observatory (LAVO) was established in March 2011. Since then, a multi-stakeholder working group has been working to establish the observatory and develop a collaborative facility to collect and analyze data. This constitutes the first LAVO report, presenting data on armed violence collected from official sources for the period 15 April to 31 August 2011.
In addition to presenting data and characteristics of armed violence in Liberia, this report outlines some of the opportunities and challenges involved in the Observatory development process.
