Julia commented on SIT in Camps

This is an interesting idea, have you implemented any of this before? If not, what are some of the challenges you feel you still need to overcome and/or barriers you need help/partners for?


Julia commented on Community Scorecards for Women's Safety

Hello Catherine & Nyarai, I came accross your project while doing some research. Have you piloted or protyped the scorecards? If you have and you could share them plus provide some input on the results and findings I would be very happy as I came accross this project while doing some research for another project on situational prevention in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico which I am coordinating.

I believe that what you are suggesting is very similar to the CPTED methodology which is an situational crime and violence prevention methodology and has some very concise diagnostic tools such as the safety exploratory march and the victimization and fear survey which help map crime and violence issues around a community, the caveat to these tools is the fact that they dont provide a concise route for prioritizing solutions that your scorecard proposes. I would love it if you could share a bit more about how you came up with the scoring process and how do you avoid leaning towards x or y direction.
