About the Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Hub
As part of the MMC global network, MMC LAC works towards the objectives of the MMC by engaging in data collection, research, analysis and policy development on mixed migration.
MMC LAC was established in September 2019. It provides high-quality information and analysis on the mixed migration patterns and dynamics in the region. Its primary objectives are to fill the knowledge gap on mixed migration; to inform programming for refugees and migrants, particularly in the area of protection; and to inform policy-making around the rights and protection of people on the move. MMC’s flagship data collection project ‘4Mi’ is implemented in Colombia and Peru, focusing on mixed migration flows out of Venezuela, and in Guatemala and Mexico, interviewing mainly Central American refugees and migrants heading towards North America. A network of 21 monitors carry out an average of 525 surveys per month with people on the move across nine locations.
