ACLED (Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project) is designed for disaggregated conflict analysis and crisis mapping. This dataset codes the dates and locations of all reported political violence events in over 50 developing countries.
ACLED Conflict Trends reports are monthly updates on political violence and conflict events in African states. They are based on real-time data, and compare current trends and patterns to historical dynamics in key focus countries.
With regular updates on the ACLED Crisis Blog, ACLED analysts discuss and create maps, charts, graphs and infographics highlighting key trends and patterns in political violence across the African continent in real time.
