In 2009, 17 major armed conflicts were active in 16 locations around the world (see tables 2A.1 and 2A.2). During the past decade, 30 major armed conflicts have been active in 29 locations worldwide.1 There has been a slight overall reduction in the number of major armed conflicts over the past decade, but the trend has been uneven (see figure 2A.1). Starting at 19 in 2000, the number declined steadily until 2004, when the period’s lowest figure was registered at 13; the following years saw an uneven increase.
