As armed violence transcends separate sectors, a comprehensive cross-sector response is needed. This requires HI practitioners to think outside their particular programming mandates and to consider the entirety of the challenges at hand. Complex situations require comprehensive approaches. HI implements a so-called Comprehensive Models to Mine Action (CAMA) and to Armed Violence Reduction (AVR) to maximize the benefits of a given project to contribute to a world where people can lead safe and fulfilling lives in peaceful and inclusive communities.

The AVR Quality Management Framework refers to this as ‘complementarity’, also referred to as synergies, within the sector and with other sectors. HI being a multi-mandated organization facilitates these synergies through collective comprehensive programming within the AVR sector and beyond, facilitating maximized impact.
Our Quality Management aims at improving AVR operations’ quality and making targeted decisions based on evidence:
Seeking to better articulate the catalytic contribution of HMA to armed violence reduction
Ensuring coherence with and furthering our contribution to broader humanitarian and development objectives
Demonstrating our mandate: addressing effects, root causes and long-term impacts of armed violence
