The programme was the first in Trujillo to advance an integrated, multi-stakeholder approach to address the multitude of insecurities faced by vulnerable and at-risk communities. With an emphasis on prevention, the programme combined policy measures with community-based initiatives to significantly improve the daily lives of those living in fear of armed robbery, extortion, human trafficking, sexual violence, drug trafficking, and gang-related violence. The success of the programme produced transferrable practices that were replicated within and beyond the country under the leadership of the government.
