SDC is preparing a new phase of their JSSR programme in Honduras and, aside from working in the capital with the Security Ministry and the National Police, the idea is to work on community security in the south of the country.
One area will be to strengthen the collaboration of the justice and security sector actors in the existing Inter-institutional Commissions on Penal Justice and the other area will be to support the Municipal Security Plans. The latter integrate key local actors in finding and implementing preventive measures in order to decrease violence, crime and homicides.
The country has one of the highest homicide rates in the world, but in the south of the country, the situation is much better and it is opportune to work preventively.
We are now looking at creative ideas for gender indicators for M&E - both related to penal justice and the above mentioned prevention measures.
Thanks in advance!
