Planning Workshops of the Alliance for Migration in Central America and Mexico (CAMMINA)
The Planning Workshops were a stage of an initiative promoted by the Alliance for Migrations in Central America and Mexico since 2012 with the support of Avina, Ford and the Open Society Foundations. The aim of this initiative was the promotion of human rights and the economic development of migrant communities in Central America and Mexico. To this end, six workshops were held in Honduras, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica in 2014. They had the participation of representatives of NGOs and businesses, and the public and private sectors. During the workshops, inputs were integrated into a work proposal that gathered local and regional views. This proposal encouraged local economic development focused on the situation of each country. They addressed young populations at risk of migration or deportation, and migrants residing in a country of destiny. The adoption of the strategies included in the proposal strengthened the idea that, by sharing knowledge, information, and resources, institutions can be identified as critical allies in this area and thus contribute to creating a more significant impact.
