For close to three years, a multidisciplinary team has been working to develop an interactive diagnostic tool for communities with the aim of helping them mobilize effectively to prevent child maltreatment. The goal of the CRABE project (Cartes sur les risques, les abus et les besoins des enfants) is to develop a geographic information system (GIS) capable of simply, reliably and uniformly providing partners with information on risk factors and protective factors in their communities, as well as information about the location of resources and services.
