IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview

For the past few years, Madagascar has been slowly recovering from the five-year political crisis (2009-2014). Although the economic situation in the country is steadily improving, Madagascar’s development challenges remain vast. As one of the poorest countries in the world, more than seventy per cent of Madagascar’s population lives in extreme poverty. Madagascar’s education, health, and nutrition outcomes remain some of the lowest in the world. Unemployment, lack of basic resources, and environmental changes drive a significant number of Malagasy nationals to seek opportunities in other regions or abroad, resulting in complex migration trends both internally and transnationally.

Following the signature of a cooperation agreement between the Government of Madagascar (GoM) and IOM in October 2014, IOM opened a permanent office in Antananarivo.  Since then, IOM has been implementing programmes in the fields of migration and health, international migration law, migration and the environment, counter-trafficking, border management, forced migration and internal displacement, labour migration, and the mobilization of the diaspora, channelled through the provision of capacity building, advisory, operational support, and technical expertise.
