Jamaica COMET

IBTCI was selected by USAID to lead a performance evaluation of the Community Empowerment and Transformation (COMET) project in Jamaica to help inform the development of future democracy and governance programs within the region.  COMET was implemented to reduce crime and violence and improve the quality of life in high-crime communities within Jamaica.  IBTCI evaluated the effectiveness of the project’s sectoral strategies, technical approaches, activities, implementation, and management by conducting quantitative surveys of over 400 Jamaican citizens, qualitative structured key informant interviews (KIIs), and focus group discussions with a variety of key stakeholder groups.
