INDES Programs are a set of online courses thematically interrelated and frequently interdependent, offered as a cohesive, more comprehensive, and lengthier learning opportunity. Some of our programs are directed at a diverse audience from organizations that work on a same institutional context such as Subnational Governments or public and private entities and agencies linked to regional integration. In most cases, courses that are part of a program might be taken individually, without any commitment to completing the full program.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
The program will contribute to strengthening the technical and operational capacity of public agencies responsible for migration affairs and middle-level officials and managers that implement and/or monitor migration policies, programs, projects and procedures and the inclusion of migrants in their host communities. To invest in the training of public officials and in the institutional strengthening of Latin America and the Caribbean, the Inter-American Development Bank’s strategic decision is not only to increase the effectiveness of these organizations, but also to contribute to regional cooperation in migration affairs and thus support the host countries/cities of migration and migrants. The development of training, networking and communities of practice between the many organizations and professionals that interact in the coordinated management of migration at borders or that manage public services in migrant-hosting communities , are key tools to promote cooperation as well as inter-institutional and cross-border coordination, supported by the IDB operational program.See More See Less
