Communication for Development (C4D) is a methodology that seeks to enable participatory processes through which communities can develop solutions that promote positive changes in behavior and social development.

The Regional Migration Program implements a Communication for Development component in communities of the region. The program aims to empower local governments, organizations, and the population at large to develop campaigns that promote regular migration and prevent the risks of irregular migration.
