3 UN HABITAT - Safer Cities Programme Background and UTC rationale The Safer Cities Programme has more than 20 years of experience in cities around the world, where it has implemented over 80 successful city projects. The next step is to disseminate the expertise gathered during this period and contribute to the implementation of the New Urban Agenda (Quito, 2016), and monitor the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in order to improve the safety in our cities, based on the recognition of good local practices, the benefits of exchange between cities and the application of new tools and strategies inspired by these guidelines. In view of the development agenda at the urban level, crime and violence prevention and reduction efforts must aim to secure the potential benefits of social, cultural, and economic integration for excluded populations. UN-HABITAT s Safer Cities Programme has piloted and tested an approach towards inclusive cities, fostering system integration and connecting institutions of governance with multi-stakeholder operations as well as improvements in welfare. In this perspective, the enhancement of urban safety is used as a proxy for determining improvement in well-being (ONU-HABITAT, 2009). The role of local authorities has proved decisive in addressing urban violence and particularly crime prevention through proper urban management and governance. In turn, a true commitment to violence prevention in all its forms requires a permanent renewal of the social contract between government institutions and citizens, enhancing accountability to the most vulnerable groups. Nonetheless, the key role of local authorities does not mean that central governments and criminal justice systems do not have a part in preventing crime and violence. On the contrary, the Safer Cities Programme s experiences show that safety and security issues must be addressed in a multilevel governance approach, where the local government addresses crimes that can be tackled through good urban planning, management and governance. Thus, the emphasis on the coordination of local safety policies by local authorities should be framed within the overall national urban development policies. UN-HABITAT s Safer Cities approach offers a three-prong typology to the local governance of safety as an inclusive city model. The first pillar social prevention - focuses on the prevention of crime and violence through the reduction of social risk factors that might lead an individual to commit crimes. The second - situational prevention - aims to minimize the opportunity to commit crimes through interventions in hot spots, formal and informal surveillance, and the enhancement of urban public spaces and services. The third pillar - institutional/community prevention - combines social and situational prevention to promote initiatives such as policing urban spaces, neighbourhood watches, etc.

4 The City Lab on Safer Cities, an initiative of the Global Network on Safer Cities In 2017, the Global Network on Safer Cities launched the City Lab on Safer Cities project with the aim of promoting the right for everyone to enjoy the city and its public spaces. The Project uses the existing local capacities and experience to achieve more inclusive, resilient, sustainable and safer cities. To do so, it will encourage knowledge exchange on policies, strategies, practices, tools and models on urban crime and violence prevention during the implementation of the New Urban Agenda and while achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. By 2019, 30 City Labs will be established. The Project deploys an innovative City Lab model in global cities that have dealt with urban violence through a holistic approach, and that are willing to share their experiences, knowledge and current challenges with other cities. In turn, the Labs will also contribute to reinforce of Global Network on Safer Cities and support the local policies on crime and violence prevention. The Labs are focused particularly on the protection and promotion of the rights of vulnerable populations such as children, youth, elderly, urban poor, slum dwellers, people with disabilities, displaced persons and migrants, indigenous peoples, homeless persons, minorities, people living with HIV/AIDS, and, in particular, women in these categories. In all their actions, the City Labs promote UN-HABITAT s Safer Cities Programme prevention model against repressive policies, isolation of citizens and stigmatization of certain groups and social communities, with the purpose to fully comprehend the causes and roots of urban conflicts, while empowering citizens so they can feel part of the urban conglomerate and the functioning logic of the city. City Labs on Safer Cities Goals The City Lab research will work to establish, in a clear and rigorous way, a standardized system of strategies and policies that contribute to the mitigation of crime in the urban context through cohesion and reducing the perception of insecurity in an integrative approach. The City Labs on Safer Cities seek to create and strengthen global alliances (and networks), to better understand the origins of crime, unify and disseminate methods and strategies that are effective in crime mitigation, improving the quality of life in our cities. Understanding the city as a cultural, economic and social mosaic where empathy, inclusion and feeling of belonging are essential to achieve an optimal functioning of urban flows (in all its expressions). The main purpose of the Project is to support a scientific debate based on knowledge, scientific rigor beyond prevention, based on evidence, best practices and effective implementation of NUA. The driving force behind City Lab on Safer Cities is that the context, experience and expertise of participant cities, following the Lab model, provides a milieu in where each city can profit from the forum in a local, national and global level to bear in support of sustainable urban development. The City Lab project seeks to: 1. Promote the UN-Habitat Safer Cities Programme prevention model, against repressive policies, isolation of citizens and stigmatization of communities. 2. Use existing local capacities and experience to achieve inclusive, resilient, sustainable and, safe cities. 3. Organize, a City Lab model based on research, capacity building, innovation and city-tocity knowledge exchange. 4

5 4. Allow a fluid exchange between local stakeholders and municipal government, on crime prevention, strategies and best practices. 5. Improve and promote citizen s cohabitee and engage participation in prevention policies and strategies. 6. Improve the right to security in cities for all citizens, leaving no one behind. 7. Promote the institutionalization of its outputs and policy improvements. City Lab on Safer Cities working framework CITIZEN S ASSEMBLY ACADEMIA UN-HABITAT PRIVATE PARTNERS / CSOs LOCAL GOVERNMENT 5
