Two countries in North America and the Caribbean were the locations of armed conflict in 2021: Mexico and Haiti. Three non-International armed conflicts exist in Mexico: one between the government and the Sinaloa Cartel and another between the government and the Jalisco Cartel New Generation (Cártel Jalisco Nueva Generación, CJNG); and one between the two rival cartels. In addition, there are estimated to be hundreds of smaller gangs and factions involved in crime and violence, as well as continued state forces involvement in human rights violations, disappearances and violence. In Haiti the armed conflict is related to gang violence.
