1. Enhancing migration governance through policy development

All throughout 2017, we have assisted several governments in Africa with the drafting of migration policies that reflect best practices in public policy cycle methodology, take into account the needs of the target population, and promote a whole-of-government approach, while establishing sound mechanisms for their implementation, evaluation and monitoring.

In Sierra Leone, we presented the National Migration Policy in October. The policy was developed by the Immigration Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other key Sierra Leonean authorities with guidance and support from a team of African and European experts selected by MIEUX.

In the Central African Republic and Malawi, we continued implementing activities that will lead to new policies and strategies related to migration.
