The Northern Triangle Advisory Group

The Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center–in partnership with DT Institute–launched the Northern Triangle Advisory Group (NTAG) in February 2021 to inform and generate support for new policy solutions to longstanding challenges facing Northern Central America. NTAG has played a critical role in informing the international community on the key priorities to accelerate inclusive economic opportunity, combat corruption and strengthen rule of law, as well as address instability in Central America. Data-driven policy recommendations from NTAG can be found in our three recent policy briefs.
