RG-T3473 : Migration In Latin-America And The Caribbean: A Comprehensive Approach To Address Policy Challenges

Project Status: Implementation

Given the multiple challenges related to migration in origin, transit and destination countries and the recent accelerating migration trends observed in Latin America and the Caribbean, the principal objective of this technical cooperation is to develop a comprehensive set of knowledge products to support countries in the region to address the impacts of migration, and to leverage the positive effects on economic growth and development. This objective will be achieved with the generation and dissemination of knowledge products with a strong focus on applying innovative approaches to data collection on the migration phenomenon, evaluating the impact of migrants in countries of origin, transit and destination and identifying good policy practices on migration to guide the Bank's operational work in this area. Special attention will be given to sector specific solutions to challenges such as access to identification and documentation, to basic services, to social services, and expanding economic opportunities. The TC will also support operational focus groups and roundtables to glean lessons and good practices and engage in partnerships with relevant institutional actors. The goal is to consolidate robust empirical evidence that can inform policymakers on how to unleash the contribution of migration and inclusive development to economic growth while managing the associated costs in origin, transit and destination countries.
