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.
The Africa Platform for Social Protection
The Africa Platform for Social Protection (APSP) was created in September 2008 as a network of organisations and individuals operating at sub-national, national and regional levels, with a commitment to promoting and strengthening the social contract between states and citizens. The Platform promotes active engagement of African civil society in the shaping of social protection policies, programmes, and practices in 25 countries in Africa.
