Latin America and the Caribbean Region
Latin America and the Caribbean covers an extensive region, ranging from Mexico and the Bahamas to Argentina and Chile. The area is home to around 660 million people and covers 21,951,000 km2. RET has been present in the region since 2004 and is currently implementing projects in Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela. RET was also present in Haiti between 2010 and 2013.
Latin America and the Caribbean region are affected by multiple migration patterns, in which its citizens see migration as the only solution to flee political and economic instabilities. In south-to-north migration flows, people search for economic opportunities and reach Mexico, Belize, and Guatemala. There is also a north-to south migration pattern originating from the same countries in Central America as well as El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua, extending further south to find refuge in Belize, Costa Rica, or Panama. Another significant migration occurs from south-to south. Crises such as the internal armed conflict in Colombia, or, more recently, the social and economic crisis in Venezuela, are forcing the population to displace internally and externally, and even return to their country of origin.
Given the internal conflicts in Colombia, the violence in the Northern Territories, and the Venezuelan crisis, RET is expanding its operations in Central and South America. Registrations are in process in Brazil, Chile, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras and operations will start soon.
