For the first time, Mexico was featured in the International Rescue Committee (IRC) 2019 Watchlist, signaling that the IRC’s crisis analysis team believes multiple risk factors in country are combining to increase the likelihood of humanitarian crises. One of those factors is the increasing rates of mixed-migration both through Mexico (originating from Northern Triangle countries, and others) and from Mexico – towards the United States. To better understand the humanitarian needs at the border, a decision was taken to assess to determine: 1) what assistance others (including civil society and Mexican government) are providing 2) what the largest needs are, of mixed-migrants at the border 3) modalities of assistance that would maximize IRC’s value-add to meet the delta between current assistance and needs.
