An assessment of youth, insecurity and juvenile justice systems, conducted by USAID Eastern and Southern Caribbean pointed at the lack of standardized data on crime and violence and their drivers. Raw data is available in different forms and at different stages of the criminal justice process due to the diversity of entities that generate security statistics, the absence of clear guidelines, and weak inter-institutional coordination and information sharing.
National consultations and assessments conducted by UNDP in the Eastern and Southern Caribbean point at four interrelated key problems: 1. Deficient evidence-based citizen security policies due to 2. Lack of reliable and comparable national and regional statistics, 3. Weak coordination at national, sub-regional and regional levels, and, 4. Weak institutional and Central Statistical Offices (CSOs) capacities. 4) The importance of up-to-date data inform prevention programme design, monitoring and evaluation.
The data gaps resulting from these challenges are further aggravated by different definitions of security concepts, non-standardized indicators and inconsistent use of information; dispersion of information and a multiplicity of information sources; sporadic initiatives in the area of information management; lack of unified technical criteria and permanent technical capacities within the national and regional institutions; absence or lack of understanding of a preventive focus in information management; low citizen participation in discussions on citizen security; and absence of mechanisms and capacities to mainstream gender into the analysis and management of citizen security related information and public policies.
Based on this, UNDP Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean began working in the countries of the Eastern and Southern Caribbean (Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname) to improve institutional capacity for evidenced based decision making on youth crime and violence policy making and programming under the project, CariSECURE. CariSECURE - Strengthening Evidence Based Decision Making for Citizen Security in the Caribbean, is a component of USAID’s Youth Empowerment Services (YES) project and is made possible by the support the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the United Kingdom Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the technical assistance of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The goal of the CariSECURE project is to improve youth crime and violence policymaking and programming in the Southern and Eastern Caribbean through the use of quality, comparable and reliable national citizen security information. The project intents to achieve two components: 1) improving the quality, comparability and reliability of data and information and youth crime and violence; 2) and regional collaboration and networking on youth crime and violence strengthened. These components will be achieved by improving regional and national institutional capacity to collect, monitor, and analyses citizen security and apply it to decision-making and policy formulation at both levels.
