ES-T1257 : Exchange El Salvador - Medellin Colombia on strategies to reduce school violence
Project Status: Closed
High rates of violence in El Salvador affect the performance of schools, and the ability of students to learn. In the past, Medellin, Colombia, experienced similar periods of high rates of violence, which affected their students, but has managed to implement multi-sectoral policies to address violence and lessen their impact on the education system. This CT-Intra seeks to generate an exchange of policies to reduce violence between Medellin and El Salvador. It will allow representatives from El Salvador to assess the impact of those policies in-site. Therefore, it should allow El Salvador learn from effective policies to reduce rates of violence, with a focus on schools. Given the multisectoral nature of violence, the activities of this CT Intra will include representatives from education, security and municipalities sector.
