Over the past few years, CPTED, also known in Latin America as The CPTED Methodology, has expanded around the world, particularly in highly violent regions such as Latin America, the Caribbean, among others.
This expansion is due to several factors such as success reducing crime and the fear of crime through CPTED strategies, greater number of courses and training in CPTED to professionals, greater numbers of systematic CPTED projects, and the strengthening of the international ICA network around the world.
In a world that is constantly changing CPTED faces great challenges to remain effective and flexible while still responding to the culture of each community that discovers the benefits of CPTED.
As the worldwide umbrella of CPTED, the International CPTED Association is ideally positioned to help CPTED practitioners worldwide in different contexts. This worldwide network of professionals and CPTED practitioners is fundamental to ensure the permanent exchange of new practices and findings.
It is this richness within the ICA network where CPTED will flourish in the years ahead, especially in the experience and diversity of its professionals. As a result, in this new period of global interconnectedness and expanding CPTED work, the ICA has embarked on formulating a Strategic Plan up to the year 2022. This plan will include CPTED in schools and communities, certification processes, homelessness, and standardization of CPTED processes, among others.
ICA has the potential as a global organization to influence and guide public policies and private actions around the world in the years ahead. This potential will be reflected in the Strategic Plan and in the coordinated efforts of ICA members around the world as they continue improving the quality of life in the diverse communities of the world.
