Planning Workshops of the Alliance for Migration in Central America and Mexico (CAMMINA)

The Planning Workshops were a phase of the initiative that has been promoted by the Alliance for Migrations in Central America and Mexico since 2012; an initiative consisting of Avina, Ford and the Open Society Foundations. The central objective of this initiative is the promotion of human rights and the economic development of migrant communities in Central America and Mexico. To this end 6 workshops were held in Honduras, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica in 2014. There were representatives of NGOs and the business, public and private sectors. In the meetings inputs to integrate a work proposal with local and regional views and to encourage local economic development focused on the situation of each country, whether a young population at risk of migration, deportation and / or migration residing in a country of destiny. The adoption of these strategies by the various institutions that participated in the 6 workshops that took place in Central America and Mexico strengthens the idea that, by sharing knowledge, information and resources, participating institutions can be more effectively associated with key allies in this area and thus contribute to a much greater impact than would have been achieved through separate actions.
