(Ottawa, ON) WorldReach Software has been invited to speak at the Migrants in Countries in Crisis (MICIC) Initiative Regional Consultation for Latin America on 17-18 February 2016 in San José, Costa Rica.
The MICIC Initiative is a government-led effort created following the 2nd UN High Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development in October 2013 in New York. The overarching aim of the MICIC Initiative is to improve the ability of States and other stakeholders to prepare for and respond to the needs of migrants caught in countries experiencing crisis, whether as a result of conflict or natural disaster, including by protecting their rights and dignity and alleviating suffering.
Regional consultations aim to facilitate the development of MICIC global guidelines by building consensus on approaches to be followed by governments and other international actors to protect migrants in countries in crisis and strengthen preparedness.
Calling upon WorldReach’s decades of consular best practices experience, Steven Grant, Director of Business Development, has been asked to speak on “Consular Crisis Management Systems” as it relates to the pre-crisis phase.
More than 25 countries from Latin America and the Caribbean have been invited to participate in this important global event.
