The yearly Migration Initiatives (MI) reflects IOM's planned responses to migration needs in a calendar year. It also serves as a tool to engage counterparts in discussions on migration, issues and possible concrete measures and to seek support for our programme priorities.
MI 2005 seeks to provide forward-looking responses to the emerging migration/ humanitarian challenges, identified migration needs and the priorities of IOM's stakeholders. In order to better reflect key migration issues at the country and regional level, MI 2005 adopted a programmatic approach (rather than project focused).
This edition also includes IOM's input to the UN Inter-Agency Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) for 2005. For 2005, overall IOM funding requirements total USD 394,734,815.
