About us

The InfoSegura Regional Project is the first regional strategic partnership of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for policymaking and implementation to address matters of citizen security in Central America and the Dominican Republic.

The UNDP InfoSegura Regional Project deploys an innovative model that is a qualitative leap in managing information on citizen security and justice in the region.


Since 2014, the Project has undertaken ongoing joint work with national and local institutions and civil society organizations, improving the quality of data for decision-making, promoting multidimensional analysis and the effective incorporation of the gender approach in the information management cycle.


In addition, the project:

  • Develops technological solutions, tools and mechanisms to reinforce institutions in their technical and technological capacities.
  • Has a digital community of practicethat exchanges experiences and knowledge management.
  • Promotes learning  to strengthen technical capacities to use data for citizen security management.
  • Supports specialized publications
  • Promotes strategies to strengthen civil society and academia through coordinated work with the Citizen Security Knowledge Network (CONOSE) (CONOSE) 
  • Designs and promotes national and regional campaigns   to prevent violence against women and girls throughout the region.


This approach guides the work with the institutions in Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and the Dominican Republic to improve their citizen security indicators, within the frameworks of sustainable development and effective governance, in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 16 that promotes peaceful, just and inclusive societies, and SDG 5 that aims to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls in public and private spheres, as part of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development.
