EU provides Nigeria with N4bn to address migration

Post  Admin on Thu Feb 16, 2012 6:06 pm

The National Planning Commission on Wednesday said it had received a grant of ‚¬20m (N4bn) from the European Union to address key challenges in the management of migration flows in the country.

The amount, which is to be used to fund the “Promoting better management of migration in Nigeria” programme, was given through the European Development Fund.

The programme is being jointly implemented by the International Organisation for Migration and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

A statement from the commission said that while the IOM was implementing the three thematic areas addressed by the assessments, a fourth component on counter-trafficking and smuggling of migrants would be implemented by UNODC.

The overall objective of the project, according to the statement, is to enhance the capacity of the Federal Government to manage migration in order to maximise its developmental potential.

This, it noted, would be achieved by strengthening the capacity of key institutions involved in migration management.

It said the move would also improve overall governance in terms of policy coherence and the use of evidence-based instruments.

As part of the full implementation of the programme, key government officials, civil society representatives and members of the diplomatic community would on Thursday (today) meet to validate the findings of institutional assessments carried out in the EU framework.

The statement said, “The participants will be presented with the findings of the institutional needs assessments carried out by IOM consultants in three thematic areas of migration data and policy; labour migration and Diaspora mobilisation, and irregular migration.

“The objective of which is to establish baselines and carry out needs analyses to guide the actual implementation period, which is to commence in April 2012.”

The statement also quoted the Secretary of the NPC, Mr. Ntufam Ugbo, to have said, “Government will take seriously all issues raised during the seminar, while taking appropriate measures to address them.

“The findings will play a pivotal role on government policy on migration as well as feed into the Nigeria-EU political dialogue on migration and development.”
