(2) examine the transnational and regional aspects of gangs in Central America and Mexico, including the impact of deportation and immigration trends;

(3) evaluate policies and programs and identify best practices in the assessment countries and the United States; and

(4) provide strategic and programmatic recommendations to USAID about addressing the gang problem in the assessment countries.
