Mainstreaming Migration into International Cooperation and Development (MMICD)

The IOM Mainstreaming Migration into International Cooperation and Development (MMICD) Initiative (2017-2022), funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Partnerships (DG INTPA) and managed from the IOM Regional Office in Brussels, aims to strengthen the process of integrating migration into international cooperation and development policy, with a focus on 9 targeted development sectors: education, health, governance, urban development, environment and climate change, security, governance, rural development, and employment. Under the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, MMICD provides guidance and tools for integrating migration into development cooperation. Guidelines, training materials, and toolkits were developed in close coordination with UN partners and were piloted in 3 countries: Nepal, Ecuador, and Madagascar.
