For the past two decades, the IDB has supported countries’ efforts in the area of citizen security and justice. Currently, the IDB’s loan portfolio includes more than 19 projects in implementation in 15 countries, adding up to a total investment of approximately US$750 million.

In addition to its traditional lending instruments, the IDB through the Citizen Security Fund (CSF), offers countries of the region a unique grant-making mechanism specifically dedicated to (i) generating and disseminating crime and violence data; (ii) strengthening the capacity of state entities to manage and evaluate public policies on citizen security; and (iii) promoting dialogue and exchange of knowledge and good practices. Total contributions to the CSF between 2012 and 2015 have amounted to US$26.9 million, which have financed a total of 61 projects.

Among other achievements, the CSF has improved the quality and availability of statistics on crime and violence against women, promoted innovation in the management of correctional facilities, generated new knowledge related to cybersecurity, and advanced regional cooperation and dialogue related to citizen security issues and lessons learned.
