Abstract

The Caribbean Region of Colombia suffers from serious problems in terms of quality of life and violence. However,this situation isn’t uniform within the region. In this sense,this paper shows the internal heterogeneity of the region in terms of spatial distribution of both phenomena using spatial analysis techniques by means of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Although territories where the two phenomena coexist were identified, the results show that a poor area isn’t necessarily violent and vice versa. Also, it should be underlined that the priority areas for the implementation of public policy vary depending on the type of violence studied and the analysis method used ****** La Región Caribe colombiana padece de serios problemas en términos de condiciones de vida y de violencia. No obstante, esta situación no es homogénea a nivel intrarregional. En este sentido, el presente documento intenta demostrar la heterogeneidad interna de la región en cuanto a la distribución espacial de ambos fenómenos mediante técnicas de análisis espacial utilizando sistemas de información geográfica (SIG). Aunque se encontraron territorios en donde coexisten los dos fenómenos, los resultados muestran que una zona pobre no necesariamente es violenta, y viceversa. Asimismo, resulta importante mencionar que las zonas prioritarias para la ejecución de política pública varían en función del tipo de violencia estudiada y del método de análisis utilizado
