Transtec in Peru: Technical Assistance in Support of the National Strategy to Fight Drugs

In April 2020, Transtec, in consortium with AGRER and JCI (Justice Coopération Internationale), was awarded the implementation of the EU-funded project “Technical Assistance in Support of the National Strategy to Fight Drugs” in Peru.

 

 

The project will consist of technical assistance to the Peruvian institutions responsible for the execution of the National Strategy to Fight Drugs, and related policies. The technical assistance will be provided by a Senior Long-Term Expert/Team Leader and a series of Short-Term Experts. The Team Leader will be in charge of the general management of the project and will identify, in collaboration with the Peruvian authorities, the bottlenecks, needs and type of solutions required. The missions of the short-term experts will be defined according to the needs of the beneficiary institutions.

The overall objective of the project is to contribute, during 32 months, to increasing the effectiveness of the National Strategy to Fight Drugs, and other anti-drug plans in the country, and particularly to strengthen the Peruvian Drugs Observatory, and its information system, through scientific methodologies and the production of information. 

The Project will implement three Results:

  • Result 1: The National Strategy to Fight Drugs, and other anti-drug plans and projects, have updated and quality indicators aimed at analyzing and evaluating the results of public policies.
  • Result 2: The National Strategy to Fight Drugs, and other anti-drug plans and projects, have scientific evidence (studies, diagnoses, investigations) that accounts for the trends of the drug problem and its various impacts in the national territory.
  • Result 3: The SISCOD (the National Information System to Combat Drugs) has validated methodologies and protocols for the registration and analysis of information that contribute to the evaluation of the National Strategy to Fight Drugs by the State sectors.

 

Through this project, Transtec not only strengthens its presence in Latin America but also widens its experience in the field of fight against drug trafficking in the region. Indeed, Transtec is also currently participating as consortium member to the implementation of the project “Strengthening of institutional capacity in the sectors of integral development with coca, illicit drug trafficking and food security for efficient management of sector budget support” in Bolivia.
