Country: 

Mexico

English
City: 
Mexico City
Place: 
Virtual
Date: 
Thursday, November 4, 2021
About the event: 

OBJECTIVES
To establish the bases of the discussion so that from the exchange of experiences and good practices, the management of migratory flows in emergency contexts is strengthened, especially health emergencies, in such a way that a model based on cooperation and co-responsibility between countries can be developed.

To strengthen the management of migratory flows in the current context, the development and consolidation of a regional coordination model for emergency situations with three specific objectives is required:

 

  • To exchange information to identify states of emergency and start with specific action mechanisms. Likewise, the involvement and strengthening of migration control institutions and consular protection networks.
  • To disseminate official, assertive, and timely information on the emergency and the specific risks of migration in an emergency context to favor the containment and management of the emergency from the countries of origin.
  • To coordinate inter-institutional mechanisms that allow the comprehensive care of migrants in emergency contexts, which implies the participation of specialized and specific government agencies in the assistance to migrant population in such a way that routes can be established for the organization, management and reception of social protections and humanitarian aid between countries, government orders and organized society.
  • The creation of a coordinated regional model will facilitate the management of flows, as well as the tasks of humanitarian assistance, international protection, and assisted return, as well as solving key public health issues such as: tests for the detection of Covid-19, forms of prevention, and access to vaccination.
