Goal 11: Prevent crime and violence in key municipalities of El Salvador and support reforms, as outlined on components 2 (Social Prevention of Violence and Crime) and 5 (Institutional and Legal Reform) of the National Policy for Justice, Public Safety and Violence Prevention. On Track The GOES launched the National Violence Prevention Strategy (ENPV) in February, representing a significant step in violence prevention. Subsequently, the GOES carried out 35 training workshops to disseminate the strategy to 636 members of Municipal Violence Prevention Committees (CMPV) and Departmental Management Cabinets. GOES vocational training sessions benefitted 125 youth from the five municipalities most affected by violence. The GOES launched the Recreational Schools Program, which benefitted 1,700 young people from 12 schools in San Vicente, La Paz, and Cuscatlan. The USG completed municipal violence diagnostics in 13 selected high-risk municipalities and provided assistance for the development of Municipal Prevention Plans and biannual action plans to reduce violence and youth involvement in gangs. A baseline study for each of the 13 municipalities to measure the impact of prevention interventions was completed. The USG is providing $5.8 million for the implementation of the plans. The municipalities will also contribute close to $500,000 each in additional funding for the activities. An institutional assessment of PREPAZ, the Ministry of Justice and Public Security’s prevention unit, was completed. Additionally, 71 PREPAZ and 40 members of Municipal Violence Prevention Committees from 20 municipalities were trained in developing municipal violence diagnostics in accordance with the national strategy. Municipal Violence Prevention Committees in San Martin and Ciudad Arce developed annual operating plans and trained to 1,027 children and youth in life skills, conflict resolution, and leadership. An Investment Board was established to promote the role of the private sector in crime and violence prevention, and a partnership was initiated with Arizona State University to conduct research in the area of prevention.
