Blog » Citizen security and human capital: Implementation manual and best practices for project design in Central America’s Northern Triangle
This manual examines how human capital projects (health and education) financed by the World Bank can integrate activities that address citizen security. While the manual provides important information on context of crime and violence in Northern Triangle countries, its principal contribution is as a guide for task teams. The manual, in combination with the Citizen Security Toolkit, is an important resource for teams to think deeply about what kinds of activities can be included in their projects. The manual lays out the basic approach to citizen security that the World Bank has adopted, but also details programs and interventions that work to reduce violence in the education and health sectors and can be incorporated into project design.
