USAID's Investments for Democracy and Governance in El Salvador - Dollars to Results
FY 2013 $9.7 M
FY 2014 $11.4 M
USAID assistance in El Salvador focuses on strengthening the justice system, anti-corruption reforms and public-private partnerships to prevent crime and violence. Programs provide support to improve criminal procedures, strengthen the ability to regulate and promote ethical conduct in the public sector, and expand crime prevention efforts at the community level. With the participation of local authorities, community and youth leaders, NGOs and the private sector, USAID programs are working to implement a new Criminal Procedures Code, improve the use of scientific evidence for convictions, implement ethics policy reforms, and developing public-private partnerships to carry out community-based crime prevention programs.
USAID'S DEMOCRACY AND GOVERNANCE PROGRAM IN EL SALVADOR WORKS WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF EL SALVADOR TO:
- Promote the efficacy of the criminal justice system;
- Expand access to justice; and
- Strengthen crime prevention through community-based activities.
