Titre : Building Regional and National capacities for improved Migration Governance in the IGAD Region (Horn of Africa)

The Regional Migration Policy Framework, adopted in 2012, provides Member Governments of IGAD a good document to better govern migration and protect migrants within the Horn of Africa. However, their capacities to implement this strategy are limited. Switzerland will support IGAD to enhance their cooperation and coordination as well as build their capacities to address existing gaps of implementation. This will improve the wellbeing and protection of migrants in the region.

Pays/Région : Horn of Africa

Durée : 01.05.2014 - 31.03.2017

Contexte
The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) member countries are faced with coordination and cooperation gaps to better address the common challenge of mixed migration, to ensure safer and regular labour migration within the region and beyond, to better engage the diaspora or to enhance the development impact of migration. Migration at IGAD is addressed within the framework of the Regional Migration Policy Framework (RMPF). The ultimate objective of the RMPF is to realize the well-being and protection of migrants including IDPs and refugees and the realisation of the developmental potential of migration. However the capacities within the region to implement this policy document are limited and technical as well as financial support is needed to remedy the situation.

Objectifs
The migration governance has been improved and the protection of migrants enhanced, thus supporting the regional development and integration process, by strengthening the regional and national capacities for the implementation of the Regional Migration Policy Framework.

Groupes cibles
The primary beneficiaries of the project will be the IGAD Secretariat as well as the Governments of IGAD Member States. Regional civil society organisations will also profit from the project to the extent that they will be included in the regional and national dialogues on migration. The ultimate beneficiaries will be the migrants, refugees and IDPs in the region who will eventually benefit from an improved governance of migration as well as better protection mechanisms in the region.
