Migration, mobility and employment
The MME Partnership aims to provide comprehensive responses to the issues of Migration, Mobility and Employment, in the interest of all partners, with the particular objectives to create more and better jobs for Africa and to better manage migration flows. Better management of migration and stimulation of employment are essential elements of strategies against poverty and other national development and co-development strategies in African countries. The benefits of international migration must be maximized for all partners. In this context, the fight against trafficking in human beings is a major priority.
Building on the achievements of the first action plan, a second Action Plan identifies the areas of cooperation for the years 2011-2013. In addition, higher education appears as a more visible and integrated part of this partnership. The new action plan has two main strands: (a) enhancing dialogue, and (b) identifying and implementing concrete actions.
More social protection for migrant workers in West Africa
The project “Support and advice to African public authorities responsible for migration and development initiatives along the migratory route to West Africa” (MeDAO Project), funded by the European Union and the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation and implemented by the International and Ibero-American Foundation for Public Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP), carries out capacity building activities in social protection of migrants.
