(2014/9/5) 군소국 지속가능개발 관련 컨퍼런스, 이주(migration)를 성장동력으로 인정

Switzerland - IOM has commended the first ever recognition of the role of migration in sustainable development for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the outcome document adopted by UN Member States on 4th September 2014 in Apia, Samoa at the Third UN Conference on SIDS.

The “Samoa Pathway” recognises the positive role that migrant and diaspora populations play in development, the value of remittances and the importance of both planning for disaster and responding to the needs of displaced people.

The SIDS conference takes place once a decade, making the several references to migration something of a break-through. But IOM notes that more needs to be done to harness the potential benefits of migration for development in SIDS, and to manage the challenges it poses.

“Forced migration due to natural disasters and climate change increases SIDS’ vulnerability and presents a formidable obstacle to development. This makes it all the more important for SIDS to reduce the risks of disasters and to build resilience, particularly with regard to population displacement,” says IOM Australia Chief of Mission and Advisor for the Pacific Mark Getchell.

IOM has also called for a promotion of talent circulation in partnerships between countries of origin and destination. Cooperation and collaboration are key to achieving sustainable development, while employment opportunities need to be created to encourage brain circulation rather than brain drain, notes Getchell.

(2014/9/5) IOM 앙골라대표부, 노동이주와 개발에 관한 워크샵 열어

Angola - IOM Angola will next week organize a three-day workshop on labour migration and development in Luanda for Angolan government officials, private sector representatives and civil society organizations.

The training is the first of a series of six organized by IOM in partnership with the Angolan Ministry of Interior to build the capacity of key government branches.

It will familiarize participants with various aspects of labour migration, including migration and development, international cooperation, regulation and administration of labour migration programmes, protection and integration of migrant workers, recruitment and diaspora engagement.

Since the signing of a peace agreement in 2002, Angola has experienced sustained economic growth which has stimulated migration within, to and from the country.

After waves of mass emigration and forced internal displacement during the intermittent 27-year civil war, the country is now experiencing complex migration flows including growing numbers of documented and undocumented economic migrants, migrants in search of international protection, former Angolan refugees returning home, victims of trafficking, and unaccompanied minors.

A “Commission for Migration Policy” has been put in place by the Ministry of Interior to develop Angola’s first migration policy to address the challenges and opportunities of these new developments.

At the request of the Ministry of Interior, IOM is providing guidance and technical support to the Commission. It will contribute expertise in areas including mapping stakeholders’ capacities and needs, capacity building through migration management workshops, surveys of best policy practices through study tours, and guidance in intra-governmental consultation between ministries.

The six workshops will take place through September and October in the Angolan capital. Subsequent topics will include mixed migration and migrant assistance, international migration law, immigration and border management, and migration and health. The project is funded by the IOM Development Fund (IDF).

(2014/9/5) IOM, 모잠비크에서 중간기착(transit) 관련 교육 제공

Posted on Fri, Sep-05-2014

Mozambique - IOM, in collaboration with the Government of Mozambique, will conduct a four-day training-of-trainers programme next week (9-12/9) in Maputo on improving protection assistance to migrants transiting the country.

Mozambique is a transit country for African migrants and asylum seekers hoping to reach South Africa. The majority come from Ethiopia, Somalia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

According to a 2012-2013 IOM survey, migrants travelling through Mozambique face major risks, including physical violence from attacks, detention and poor conditions in various police holding cells. Some vulnerable migrants die transiting the country.

The authorities often lack the resources and training to provide protection-sensitive migration management skills to front line officials screening migrants. IOM’s training-of-trainers workshops are designed to help respond to the challenge.

At both the 2010 Dar Es Salaam Regional Conference on Refugee Protection and International Migration and at the 2014 Migration Dialogue for Southern Africa (MIDSA), Mozambique was among the countries adopting measures to ensure that vulnerable migrants are identified and assisted.

IOM’s training, organized with the Mozambique Migration Directorate, will bring together 20 Mozambican government officials involved in migration management from the Department of Assistance for Women and Children, Attorney General’s Office, National Police for Criminal Investigations and Border Control.

The programme will be duplicated throughout Mozambique’s provinces in 2015 and is part of an IOM irregular migration project funded by the US State Department’s Bureau for Population, Refugees and Migration (BPRM).

(2014/9/5) IOM, 소말리아에서 화재 피해 가구 지원

Somalia - IOM has delivered emergency aid to more than 100 people burned out of their homes when fire raged through a displacement camp in the town of Bosaso in the Puntland area of Somalia.

A blaze, possibly started by a cooking fire, broke out on August 16th at the 55 Bush settlement in Bosaso, which lies in the Bari region of northeast Somalia.

IOM worked with local authorities and partner agencies to provide emergency aid to more than 100 people whose makeshift shelters were destroyed. The traditional shelters are called “buuls” and are made of wooden sticks, cloth and cardboard boxes.

Isaac Munyae of IOM Somalia said that most displaced people in Bosaso are from different parts of south central Somalia and tend to cluster together based on their clans.

A rapid assessment after the fire identified urgent needs including shelter, food, water, non-food relief items, protection for under-age children, and protection for women and girls from gender-based violence (GBV).

IOM helped the local authorities to provide water trucking, shelter, water, hygiene and sanitation kits, and other non-food relief items for the affected families.

IOM’s emergency assistance in Bosaso is supported through its mixed migration programme, which is funded by the US State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM).

(2014/9/5) IOM, 남수단에서 이민 관료 대상으로 역량강화 교육 실시

South Sudan - While South Sudan continues to grapple with widespread insecurity and mass displacement, IOM is continuing to build the new country’s limited administrative capacity.

IOM Juba this week hosted a five-day training on document examination, imposter recognition, and risk profiling for 22 officers from South Sudan’s Directorate of Nationalities, Passports and Immigration (DNPI).

The goal of the training was to improve the skills and capacity of immigration officers from Juba International Airport and the two most frequented border crossings into Uganda – Nimule and Kaya.

IOM is currently working closely with DNPI and international experts to develop an immigration processes and procedures manual and a set of border management training modules. These are crucial tools to ensure that border management policy decisions are understood and implemented by officers in the field. IOM constructed seven new border posts in South Sudan in 2013 and 2014.

To date, IOM delivered 27 technical trainings benefitting 675 officers. Topics addressed have included human-trafficking and smuggling, detection of forged documents, investigative skills, interviewing skills and overall migration management and policy principles.

The trainings and the construction of seven new border posts throughout the country were funded by the Government of Japan.
