Event Description

From October 25-28, in Panama City, there will be a space for the exchange of experiences, foment cooperation amongst countries and promote Central American integration.

The several security actors (civil society, local and national government, regional institutions and other) will present their achievements and learned lessons while building collectively the security agenda “Compromiso Centroamérica”.

This is a joint work effort between SICA and UNDP with the support of the Spanish International Cooperation Agency for Development (AECID).

One of the main concerns in Central America today is the increase of violence and citizen insecurity. Although there are different national realities, the region stands out as one of the most violent regions in the world.

Fortunately, Central America is also a region that hubs many experiences, strategies and political proposals that allows us to think in integrated security solutions. That picture the region as an “Experiences Lab” to share, learn and believe that is possible to face the problems of violence within a democratic framework.

Compromiso Centroamérica is a space designed in a Knowledge Fair format, which is a tool for UNDP to obtain three goals. First, to showcase the acquire knowledge of several experiences highlighting achievements and learned lessons. Second, to facilitate processes of horizontal cooperation by introducing interested individuals to accomplished experiences. And third, to find and consolidate common ground work and develop or strengthen networks.

The themed axes of Compromiso Centroamérica are the following:

• Knowledge production
• Media and Security
• Culture of legality
• Youth Violence Prevention
• Gender and Security
• Security Management from a local level
• Control to the illicit traffic of Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW), their parts and ammunition
• Security Sector Reform
• Central American Juridical cooperation

Compromiso Centroamérica is also a chance to promote an integration image of the Central American Region, which will count on a cultural agenda that includes promoting artists, youth collectives and experiences to share.
