Guatemala y Honduras son los dos países con mayor registro de aprehensiones desde el 2007 hasta marzo del año fiscal 2019 (oct-mar).

In 2016, the World Bank Group stepped up its engagement in situations of conflictinduced forced displacement at the global and country levels and adopted a new approach to its engagement that recognizes displacement as a development challenge that must be addressed to attain the World Bank Group’s twin goals.
