The Technical Assistance Partnership (TAP) initiative, with one of Canada’s experts in international development, Philip Jakob, is working in collaboration with Guatemala’s Secretariat against Sexual Violence, Exploitation and Trafficking in Persons (SVET) to support the design and implementation of a digital platform for the collection and monitoring of data and indicators on crimes of sexual violence, exploitation, and human trafficking.
The platform will enable SVET to carry out an informed and objective analysis of risk factors that will allow it to concentrate financial and human resources in those areas and population groups that are most vulnerable to these crimes, especially women, girls and migrant populations. The platform will consolidate data from multiple government agencies and will capture data generated in real-time from work carried out by the teams deployed in the communities at the national level through the different projects and initiatives that SVET implements.
Philip’s work will include evaluating SVET’s sexual violence, exploitation, and human trafficking crimes data collection, management and data analysis, procedures, requirements, and tools, identifying international best practices and developing a suitable digital statistical system for data collection and indicators. He will also create and facilitate workshops and training for key personnel on the use of statistical information for gender-responsive strategic programming.
