Description: 

The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) published the “Inventory of Institutional Capacities and Practices” of the joint ICMPD-IOM project “Linking Emigrant Communities for More Development”, funded by France, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland, and implemented under the framework of the Dialogue on Mediterranean Transit Migration (MTM). 

This “Inventory of Institutional Capacities and Practices”, prepared by ICMPD and IOM, is a tool aiming to support governments with significant emigrant communities to further develop knowledge-based policies contributing to a favourable and/or enabling environment for emigrants to contribute to the development of their country of origin. 
The Inventory offers an overview of comparable information on existing institutional practices and identified challenges related to emigrant communities faced by 13 countries of origin, namely Algeria, Cape Verde, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Lebanon, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Syria and Tunisia.
