After the merger between CIFCA and Grupo Sur, and with the creation of the new EU-LAT Network with a geographical work mandate covering the entire Latin American region, the Network has made significant progress in its institutional consolidation. Proof of this are the elaboration of internal programmatic documents (for example, the Five-Year Strategic Plan and gender policy brief) as well as other external communication management tools (website, brochures, etc.), as well as the active participation of its members (new Work Groups).

However, there are still important institutional challenges, including strengthening the financial sustainability of the network. Since the merger between CIFCA and Grupo Sur, the new network has not been able to concretize the development of a financial sustainability strategy.

Therefore, the EU-LAT Network has decided to prioritize this issue and seeks external advice to develop a comprehensive strategy for the creation of a more solid sustainability strategy.
