IOM Holds First Ever Training on Migration Governance, Policy Framework for Staff in Rwanda

Capacity Building, Migration Governance, Migration Policy

Kigali – The International Organization for Migration (IOM) held the first ever Migration Governance and Policy Framework (MiGoF) Training (21-22/5) for its staff in Rwanda.

IOM's MiGOF sets out a structure in which States and IOM can work together to address migration issues. The framework presents the ideal version of migration governance, to which States can aspire, and for which IOM can provide support and assistance.

The course demonstrated  how the MiGof contributes to IOM’s planning, project development and  reporting. It also built the capacity of the participants to use the Migration Governance Indicators (MGIs) – a tool based on the MiGOF – to assess governments’ migration governance as well as to support their implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Global Compact for Migration (GCM).

Finally, the participants learned how to communicate effectively with external stakeholders using the MiGOF.  The training sessions were facilitated by Alice Kimani from the IOM Regional Office in Nairobi.
