The smallest country in Central America is characterised by a long history of emigration with multiple factors, ranging from economic to climate-driven, at the root of population movements. Remittances represented 20.9% of the gross domestic product in 2019 and have not slowed down after the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

MIEUX+ will support the Ministry of External Relations and the Diplomatic Institute "Doctor José Gustavo Guerrero" in developing its capacities in the area of EU migration and asylum.

After the Capacity and Training Needs Assessment, a Training course and related Handbook (including training curriculum, lesson plans and training materials)  will be designed.

Following the online course, the MIEUX+ team and experts will deliver the "Vocational Train the Trainers" course to a selected group of public officials, to effectively replicate and disseminate knowledge within the country's diplomatic and consular representations.
