Migration Action Plan 2015-2020

In order to implement the RMPF, the IGAD Secretariat developed the Migration Action Plan (MAP) 2015-2020. This document was drafted in response to the findings of several assessments on migration and population displacement in the IGAD region as well an identification of priorities exercise conducted within member states and validated regionally.

The MAP comprises twelve strategic priorities with clusters of activities constructed around the key components and recommendations of the IGAD RMPF. Priorities include, amongst others, ensuring better management of labour migration, supporting and facilitating the cross-border and internal mobility of pastoralist communities, building national data systems on migration and accelerating economic integration and prosperity through the facilitation of free movement of people in the IGAD region.
