As part of the Northern Triangle Migration Information Management Initiative (NTMI), IOM works closely with the governments of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to strengthen their capacities to manage, collect, analyze and share information on migration to support humanitarian action and vulnerable populations in the region.

Meanwhile, in Honduras, IOM has accompanied the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in various projects related to migration, supporting the strengthening of institutions to meet the needs of the migrant population and conducting analysis on existing policies and strategies that benefit them.
