The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), plays a key role utilizing U. S. international drug and crime assistance to build the capacity of Peruvian institutions to more effectively improve counter-narcotics efforts, including citizen security, social inclusion, gender
issues, and empowering communities and vulnerable populations.
INL’s Drug Demand Reduction (DDR) program aims to prevent drug-use, violence, and crime by youth populations.
DDR works to reduce the impact of illegal drugs by providing effective foreign assistance and fostering multilateral cooperation as an integral part of a comprehensive criminal justice strategy.
The United States Government, represented by INL and its office at the U. S. Embassy in Lima, Peru, is seeking applications from qualified civilian groups, NGOs, or educational institutions that will be responsible for conducting an evaluation study and the dissemination of the evidence-based principles of the Universal Prevention Curriculum (UPC).
