Assessment of National and Regional Crime Observation and Analysis for Evidence-Based Youth Crime and Violence Prevention Programmes in the Caribbean

Author(s) : CIPC


The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) through the Strengthening of Evidence-based Decision Making for Citizen Security in the Caribbean (CariSECURE) Project has mandated ICPC to undertake a Comparative Institutional Assessment of national data governance with a specific focus on youth crime and violence statistical capacities. Carried out in Saint Lucia, Guyana, Saint-Kitts & Nevis and Barbados, during the month of October 2017, the assessment was also directed at national crime prevention frameworks, infrastructures, strategies, partnerships and coordination capacities, to provide specific recommendations to improve regional and national crime observation and analysis capacities and evidenced-based decision making. The results of this assessment will be provided to local stakeholders and will serve as the as the basis for the subsequent phase of the CariSECURE Project.
