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 2006 has evolved as it 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 2006 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 2006. For 2006, overall IOM funding requirements total USD 646,719,077.
