Project Overview and Role

This activity supports U.S. strategic interests in Guatemala and the region, as well as the Government of Guatemala's own priorities. The U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America (CEN) is an interagency strategy focused on the underlying factors compelling migration, especially illegal migration of unaccompanied children. The CEN strategy aligns with a regional plan developed by the governments of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras (known as the Northern Triangle countries) called the Alliance for Prosperity, with alignment on the three pillars of prosperity, security, and governance. Support envisioned under this Activity will address all three of the CEN strategy pillars by increasing tax revenues and improving public expenditure management and overall economic governance to increase service provision under health, education, security, and infrastructure.
