Organization: International Organization for Migration
Within Nigeria, a large pool of potential migrants seek employment, or a better life abroad. With limited awareness of safe migration practices or the dangers of irregular migration, many attempt to travel to many regions, including Europe through the desert to Libya and some through the Central Mediterranean route to Europe, at risk of death, torture, slavery, rape and many more experiences.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in close cooperation with national government and other non-governmental stakeholders is implementing a three year project under the EU Trust Fund for Africa. The project aims to strengthen national migration governance and to support a sustainable reintegration of returning migrants in Nigeria. Under the project, IOM will work with the Government of Nigeria, implementing partner government agencies, civil society and communities across areas of high irregular migration in Nigeria to contribute to a reduction in irregular migration through awareness campaign planning.
To this end, IOM Nigeria in strong collaboration with the Nigerian government and relevant stakeholders is planning the development and design of appropriate Information, Education and Counselling materials (IEC) to sensitise potential migrants and communities of origin of the dangers of irregular migration and to consider alternatives to safe migration. The IEC materials are also geared to help potential migrants make safe and informed decisions about their migratory journey. Using behavioural change communication and communication for development techniques, the aim is to increase the level of awareness among the community regarding the safe migration process. Additionally, the aim is to ensure potential migrants and their communities are informed about sources of reliable information such as Migrant Resource Centres (MRCs), who are able to provide reliable information and support to potential migrants in their home communities.
