9 November, 2021

In October 2021, 39 officials of the Government of Honduras completed the Diploma on Migration and Development, an eight-week training process designed to strengthen the technical capacities of the human resources of the government institutions that make up the Inter-Institutional Table on Labour Migration.


The tools acquired will enable them to improve dialogue, coordination and the generation of work proposals under a comprehensive approach to the issue of labour migration and its link with development.



The International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Independent Monitoring Group of El Salvador (GMIES), under the coordination of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), participated in the formulation of this diploma course in blended learning mode. The course is accredited by the Universidad Tecnológica Centroamericana (UNITEC), one of the most prestigious higher education institutions in Honduras.


Officials from the Ministry of Labour and Social Security and the National Migration Institute of Honduras participated in the course. During the process, they delved into the theoretical aspects of migration and the behavior of migration flows. They also obtained new tools and shared best practices observed in their institutions.


This activity was facilitated by IOM, within the framework of the Western Hemisphere Program, financed by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration.
