To analyze the relevance and feasibility of building regional schemes for the recognition and certification of competencies.
- To identify the existing links between national schemes for the recognition and certification of competencies, as well as their referencing towards a possible regional qualifications framework.
- To promote the exchange of good practices in order to learn about the progress and challenges in the construction of national competency certification schemes and national and regional qualifications frameworks.
- To identify, based on shared experiences, the challenges in access to services for the recognition and certification of competencies of migrants with reference to national frameworks and with a view to a regional qualifications framework.

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.
To strengthen the capacities of employment advisors in the RCM Member Countries relating to the identification of occupational profiles of migrant populations, with a human rights, gender and inclusive approach.
1. To strengthen knowledge about labour migration and the importance of addressing this matter with a human rights, gender and inclusive approach.
2. To promote the exchange of best practices in assisting this population group, considering situations of vulnerability as well as the sociocultural and occupational profiles of beneficiaries.
3. To analyse the benefits of improving practices relating to the labour integration of migrant workers, with a focus on dignified employment, ethical recruitment and corporative responsibility.
To advance the exchange of experiences and best practices, disseminating knowledge and generating a dialogue aimed at delivering proposals for the attention of women and girls in conditions of mobility, and developing their autonomy and empowerment from a perspective on gender, intersectionality, human rights and inclusion.
- To generate a dialogue that allows broadening the knowledge regarding the situation of migrant women and girls in the region, particularly in the context of this pandemic; sharing best practices and experiences regarding the measures taken by countries in order to protect their rights, as well as developing their autonomy.
- To transcend the dominant vision of assistance towards migrant women and girls and begin referring their importance in terms of real (re)integration and substantial equality in the different spheres of life, and not just in the productive fabric, by recognizing their capacity as agents and diverse contributions in the countries of origin, transit, destination and return.
- To encourage an exchange between Member Countries in identifying areas of opportunities in order to strengthen gender-based public policies aimed at migrants, according to the application of the Guidelines for the Attention and Protection of Women in the Context of Migration by each of the Member States and recommendations issued by the working groups.
