We have worked in nearly every country in the region to reduce crime and violence, strengthen civil society, improve economic conditions and empower marginalized communities to have a greater say in their communities, particularly those affected by conflict.
For nearly a decade in Mexico, we have worked hand in hand with the national government and regional partners to bring about significant reforms to the criminal justice system. These reforms bring a presumption of innocence, pre-trial services, public oral trials and increased transparency.
In Colombia, we support an emerging peace process while strengthening the ability of Colombian regional governments to deal with a refugee crisis on the Venezuelan border.
Our regional data collection capabilities and analysis help USAID missions develop innovative programs using collaboration, learning and adaptation methodologies.
