IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview

Madagascar is slowly recovering from the five-year political crisis (2009-2014) that stunted the economy and reversed much of the country’s progress. As one of the poorest countries in the world, the World Bank estimates that 90 per cent of Madagascar’s population lives under the poverty line. Compounding economic and political challenges, Madagascar is also one of the countries most negatively affected by climate change, which is evidenced by the increasing severity and unpredictability of natural disasters, such as cyclones, flooding, and drought.

Unemployment, lack of basic resources, and environmental changes are some of the main drivers of migration in Madagascar, resulting in complex migration trends both internally and transnationally.

Since 2014, IOM has supported the Government of Madagascar in addressing the challenges and advancing the benefits of migration. Over the years, IOM Madagascar has implemented programmes concerning health and migration, international migration law, migration and the environment, counter-trafficking, forced migration and displacement linked to natural disasters, labour migration, and diaspora engagement, channeled through consultation services and technical cooperation.
