The overall objective of the project is to facilitate the free movement of persons and improve regular labour migration and mobility in the IGAD region in order to enhance regional economic integration, stability and development.
Considering the progress achieved, in June 2020 the project was topped up with an amount of €5 million. This will help promoting inter-regional legal migration further, while enhancing orderly cross-border mobility and migration, regional economic integration, and regional development.
The specific objectives of the project are:
(I) to support the process of adoption, ratification and domestication of the IGAD Protocols on Free Movement of Persons and on Transhumance by IGAD Member States upon their adoption by IGAD Council of Ministers, along with complementary measures to implement them; and
(II) to improve opportunities for regulated labour mobility and decent work for migrant workers in the region.
