Approach Paper: Citizen Security in Latin America and the Caribbean: IDB's Comparative Advantage

The evaluation is the second in a two-stage evaluation of citizen security. The first evaluation examined five citizen security operations. That evaluation focused on the implementation challenges the Bank faces. This second phase of the evaluation will look more broadly at all of the Bank's work in citizen security, including both lending and non-lending activities. It will also attempt to identify the Bank's strengths (and weaknesses) in addressing one of the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Region's most pressing challenges: the persistence of crime and violence.
