Juntos Para la Prevención de la Violencia
With better partnerships across the government and civil society organizations, Mexico can improve the way it targets crime and violence in vulnerable communities.
In Mexico, long-standing cycles of crime and violence continue to limit local communities’ ability to govern and live peacefully. USAID’s Juntos Para la Prevención de la Violencia project, which loosely translates as “preventing violence together,” improves the way that the Mexican government monitors crime and violence as well as designs and implements prevention policies. The project works at the federal, state, and municipal levels in five communities that were selected based on high crime rates, local political will, and the strength of civil society and private sector institutions.
