IGAD Regional Migration Policy Framework

Since its inception in 1986, the Inter-governmental Authority for Development (IGAD) has developed a number of important sectoral policy papers and frameworks in order to support its strategies with the view to responding effectively to its mandate, vision and mission.

This has been the case for main priority areas of cooperation as outlined in the Agreement Establishing IGAD. The focus of these efforts has always been on issues of relevance and importance to the member states. Migration has increasingly become a key phenomenon in the African continent and the African Union has been at the fore front in recognizing the contribution of migration to socio-economic development and as poverty reduction strategy; thus inspiring the continental body to adopted the Migration Policy framework for Africa (2006) as a basic guideline and reference document to assist Member States and RECs to develop national and regional migration policies as well as, their implementation in accordance with their own priorities and resources.
