Community and Stakeholders/Services Mapping and Partner Capacity Assessment in Minya & Dakahlia Governorates
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), under the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration (hereinafter “the Joint Initiative”) financed by the European Union Trust Fund, is supporting the Governments across the regions of West and Central Africa, the Horn of Africa and North Africa to strengthen governance of migration and enhance sustainability of reintegration for returning migrants and to the communities to which they return. In the North Africa region, the programme is being implemented in Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Libya with the Regional Office (RO) in Cairo taking the overall management and coordination role.
Across the target countries, the Joint Initiative has the following specific objectives:
- To improve protection and enable the voluntary return of stranded migrants and migrants in transit in North Africa.
- To support targeted countries to enhance the sustainability of reintegration through an integrated approach addressing economic, social, and psychosocial dimensions.
- To increase the capacities of North African countries and relevant stakeholders to develop or strengthen return and reintegration policies and processes, including identification and referral.
According to IOM’s approach, reintegration can be considered sustainable when returnees have reached levels of economic self-sufficiency, social stability within their communities and psychosocial well-being that allow them to cope with (re)migration drivers. Having achieved sustainable reintegration, returnees are able to make further migration decisions a matter of choice rather than necessity. IOM’s MEASURE project defined a set of indicators to measure sustainability that will be used in the Initiative and are expected to be used in this assessment.
In order to improve the management of reintegration cases, IOM is commissioning a consultancy to conduct a local stakeholder and service mapping in areas of high return. The assessment will aim at providing an overview of the main characteristics of communities of return and/or localities of return in the context of reintegration, map key stakeholder and available services that could contribute to sustainable reintegration of migrants, and information on local economic opportunities in support of providing livelihood options for returnees.
The specific objectives are to:
- Understand the perceptions of return migration of communities of return;
- Assess the availability of socio-economic and social welfare services in communities of return with a focus on economic, social and psychosocial support services available;
- Map and assess the capacity and effectiveness of key stakeholders involved in the provision of socio-economic and social welfare;
- Identify opportunities to enhance employability and entrepreneurship of migrants, local returnees, and youth; as well as potential linkages to other stakeholder interventions;
- Map existing and potential providers of vocational trainings and financial services and assess capacities to enhance the skills of youth and returnees.
