Location: Central America

  2. Stakeholder meetings and consultations;
  3. Identification and design of IMM policy amendments and/or policy instruments;
  4. Discussions of recommendations with SICA/CAC for inclusion within relevant policy guidance and strategies;
  5. Drafting of IMM policy & practice relevant recommendations to SICA/CAC;
  6. Facilitation of regional policy guidance by SICA/CAC to its member countries.
