1. General Background

Honduras is characterized by a situation of protracted internal displacement due to violence.
It continues to be affected by high levels of violence representing a challenge in terms of
protection and assistance. Despite the fact that forced displacement was recognized by the
Government in 2013, an adequate response remains a challenge due to: i) multiple flows of
people within the same high-risk zones (people at risk of displacement, IDPs, deportees,
and the population as a whole); ii) high-risk cases unable to access international protection;
iii) a crisis of rule of law due to governance problems that inhibit an adequate response to
human rights violations and widespread violence mainly, but not exclusively, in urban

The Government faces the challenge of strengthening its governance structure and
overcoming issues of corruption and impunity. The country has one of the highest numbers
of gangs (maras y pandillas) per territory, and they are mostly located in urban areas in
Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, and La Ceiba, exercising territorial control over most of the
neighborhoods. The situation has worsened since 2000 when Honduras became a key
narcotraffic route in the Central American Region.

Regarding mixed movements, the reformulation of migration routes in the past 5 years
alongside Honduras' geographic position means that there are continuous flows of people
in transit. Honduras is also a reception country for Refugees and Asylum Seekers. This
condition takes special relevance after the political crisis in Nicaragua in 2018 that created
an increased need of protection in the region. Honduras adhered to the Comprehensive
Regional Protection and Solutions Framework (known as MIRPS in Spanish) in 2017.

IDPs and returnees living in high-risk communities share similar obstacles to access
employment and self-reliance opportunities due to a stigmatization process based on the
place of residence and the age. In 2017, UNHCR introduced the Protection Transfer
Arrangement (PTA), a regional resettlement program. IDPs who have been persecuted
and/or are at high risk of future persecution are identified and evaluated in Honduras and
submitted to different RST countries.
