Crime threatens citizen security and development in Latin America: UNDP

Listen /

Heraldo Muñoz

Citizens in countries of Latin America don't feel safe because of crime, including robberies and murder, according to a report issued by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) on Tuesday.

The Regional Human Development Report (HDR) 2013-2014 is titled "Citizen Security with a Human Face: evidence and proposals for Latin America".

It says insecurity is a shared challenge that obstructs social and economic development of every country in Latin America.

UNDP Director for Latin America and the Caribbean, Heraldo Muñoz, tells UN Radio's Donn Bobb that the report reveals a paradox in the region.
