About the project

This story is part of a series collated under the Mainstreaming Migration into International Cooperation and Development (MMICD) initiative led by IOM and funded by the EU. The series gathers examples of effective migration mainstreaming in different development sectors.

The MMICD initiative, implemented by IOM and funded by the EU, aims to strengthen the process of integrating migration into international cooperation and development policy.

The programme that is highlighted in this MMICD video as an example of integrating migration into governance programmes is the Safe and Fair Programme as part of the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative. Safe and Fair is implemented through a partnership between the ILO and UN Women, in collaboration with UNODC.
