Wilson Center – Addressing the Converging Risks of Climate, Insecurity, and Migration in Central America

Latin America and the Caribbean is the second most disaster-prone region in the world. In the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras the effects of extreme weather and changing climate conditions are further compounded by a confluence of violence and migration challenges. Insecurity in the region is fueled by extreme rates of gang violence and extortion, failing democratic governance and ineffective institutions, pervasive corruption, and gender, racial, and socioeconomic inequality. More recently, insecurity has also been propelled by the expansion of illicit networks and the limited capacity of cities to constructively absorb a growing number of migrants.

In the face of these complex dynamics, a focus on prevention and investments that address commonly overlooked factors–like the challenges facing women and girls in the region–can yield exponential resilience outcomes. Join us on April 28th to hear from a panel of experts on how we can better support decision-makers, civil society, and diverse communities of practice to work together to strengthen resilience in the region.
