Key Considerations to Inform USAID’s Engagement in the Northern Triangle Countries


This advisory notice provides considerations for USAID as it implements expanded programming to address irregular migration from countries in Central America’s Northern Triangle region. The issues we have identified fall into four broad areas, drawing from past oversight work and building on the top management challenges we have reported to USAID:

  1. Managing risks inherent to humanitarian assistance;
  2. Ensuring efforts to plan, monitor, and sustain U.S.-funded development;
  3. Maximizing stakeholder coordination for effective region-wide response; and
  4. Addressing vulnerabilities and implementing needed controls in Agency core management functions.
