Why we do it

Large and sudden intraregional migration flows have become an emerging development challenge in Latin America and the Caribbean, creating a potential development crisis in already vulnerable migrant recipient communities. If addressed properly and with the urgency needed, this crisis could not only be avoided, but also become a development opportunity for the whole region
