The Joint UNDP-IOM Global Programme supports partner governments and their partners to:

i) better measure and make more visible the human development impacts of migration;

ii) govern migration to increase the human development outcomes; and

iii) to mitigate the risks for migrants, their families and communities at origin and destination. Specifically, the joint programme supports governments and their partners to:

  • collect more evidence to support policymaking;
  • integrate migration considerations into national and local policy planning processes;
  • identify and implement priorities for migration;
  • strengthen capacities to design, implement and monitor and adjust their approaches to migration and displacement; and
  • consolidate or enhance coordination mechanisms with respect to migration.
