In order to create a more robust and resilient coffee sector in the Central America countries of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, USAID partners with Texas A&M University to help 25,000 smallholder coffee farmers be better prepared to face diseases such as coffee rust and to open doors to greater economic opportunities. 


USAID’s contribution of $16.8 million to the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Return and Reintegration in the Northern Triangle Program in the countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras provides services to help returning migrants reintegrate into local communities, and to alert the public on the risks of illegal immigration to the United States.

The program tackles fundamental reintegration needs of returning families and unaccompanied children to break the cycle of migration. 


USAID’s Regional Academy for Security Analysis project builds regional institutional capacity to analyze data and develop evidence-based security policies to improve public safety in the Central America region (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador) and reduce illegal immigration.


USAID enhances economic growth in Central America by strengthening the region’s trade capacity and competitiveness through increased regional integration and lower trade costs.  Strong, stable economies in the region are in the direct interest of the U.S. to stem the flow of illegal immigration from Central American countries.


Despite important human rights achievements, particularly in legislation and institutional capacity, insecurity and violence persist in the Central America region.  USAID’s Regional Human Rights and Democracy project helps prevent human rights violations, strengthens the response to address human rights violations, and promotes sustainable early warning and protection systems for key vulnerable groups.
