• Armed conflicts (2019-2022)

    Most conflicts initially start out as very local phenomena. Monitoring political violence events at local-level can help anticipate the escalation of conflicts within states, recognise signs of crisis development and determine likely conflict trajectories. The Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) collects reported information on internal political conflict disaggregated by date, location and actors to facilitate local and scale-dependant research on war patterns and processes. This layer shows all political violence and protest events recorded by ACLED in Africa for the period 2019-2022.
