Case Study

Crowdsourcing Indicators of Violence and Migration in Honduras

The USAID Monitoring and Evaluation Support for Collaborative Learning and Adapting (MESCLA) initiative sought new, more effective approaches to monitoring citizen security and understanding if and how perceptions of security were related to citizens’ plans to migrate. MESCLA used Premise to collect information on nine sentinel indicators of citizen security that could paint a more holistic and hyper-localized picture of community conditions than typical measures (e.g. homicide statistics).
