Structure of the Regional Network

The Network for the Regional Platform for Migration Information (RPMI) will be composed of focal points of the National Offices and Institutes of Migration from each involved country, with representative participation of women and men. The Network will focus on the exchange of migration information disaggregated by gender and will promote coordination among countries.

The RPMI Network will seek to focus on strengthening the production of information on migration. In the future, the Network will seek to implement actions to coordinate with other initiatives in order to further develop the Network and enable mutual enrichment between different platforms.

The Network will make the decisions regarding the development of RPMI during face-to-face or virtual meetings through the platform.

The Regional Office for Central America, North America and the Caribbean will have a leading role during the initial implementation and coordination phase of the platform. However, as the platform is established the Regional Office will accompany the process until the platform has been finalized.
