Facility on Sustainable and Dignified Return and Reintegration in support of the Khartoum Process

The project aims to facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration management through the development and implementation of rights-based, development-focused and sustainable return and reintegration policies and processes.

In May 2018, a top-up of €20 million was approved with to aid the Regional Facility on Dignified Return and Sustainable Reintegration in supporting the reintegration of returnees from the Central Mediterranean Route and EU Member States in particular.

An second top-up of €10 million was accepted in December 2019, to allow sustaining the provision of emergency protection, life-saving assistance, voluntary return and reintegration of vulnerable migrants – as well as the generation of migration data and capacity building activities – until mid-2021.

An additional top-up of €5.95 million to the action was finalised in July 2021, increasing the total EU contribution to €60.95 million. The additional funds aim to reinforce the core set of activities under the pillars of migration data, capacity building, assisted voluntary return and reintegration assistance (AVRR), as well as monitoring and evaluation.

Main objectives

The overall objective of the project is the following: to facilitate orderly, safe, regular and rights-based migration through the facilitation of dignified voluntary return and the implementation of development-focused and sustainable reintegration policies and processes.
