Stakeholder mapping of citizen security interventions in El Salvador

Created Jun 29 2021, 10:15 AM by Johannes Peter Zimmermann

The objective of this paper is a twofold exercise: first, to map stakeholders in El Salvador that engage on citizen security and violence prevention programs and, second, explore potential gaps of opportunity where World Bank teams can engage on issues related to citizen security with an updated approach. While there have been past efforts to track and monitor stakeholders and their interventions, it is important to have up-to-date understanding of what is being done to avoid duplication of efforts and encourage collaboration among the many different actors.

This brief provides a general baseline overview of current donor activities (including loans, grants, donations and others) from international cooperation agencies and multilateral organizations in response to the Government of El Salvador (GOES) needs, strategies, and priorities in the crime and violence sector to build lasting peace in the country. It includes a partial inventory of implemented projects and technical capacity provided, as well as examples of novel initiatives and overall trends in citizen security.
