The Secretary of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, Marcelo Ebrard, announced on Wednesday, June 19th at the UN the creation of a Comprehensive Development Plan for Central America, which seeks to address the causes of migration in the area, and 2 days later announces a pot of 100 Million USD and a comprehensive plan where 17 UN agencies will participate in strong cooperation. 

 

This project was prepared by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, with the participation of the Governments of El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico, and aims to put into practice the idea that people should not be subjected to conditions of forced migration due to poverty or insecurity.

In fact, he stressed, they should have development options in their places of origin and that is the purpose of the plan.

Mexico will provide resources for several million dollars to the initiative, and it is expected that Spain and Germany will also support it with financing, said Ebrard.

The plan is aimed at creating immediate employment options and address problems such as the Central American dry corridor which caused one of the first forced migrations due to the consequences of climate change.
