This report provides a comprehensive overview of the relevant roll-out and implementation activities undertaken to date to implement Migration Crisis Operational Framework (MCOF), fulfilling International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) commitment to keep its Membership informed.

Member States of IOM endorsed the MCOF in November 2012. The MCOF was designed to fill an important policy gap on how the IOM responds to crisis. Equally significant, it set out to provide a practical crosssectoral approach to programming in crisis settings, aimed at strategically and inclusively enhancing IOM’s field response to all vulnerable migrants and mobile populations, regardless of their status, before, during and after crisis.

The report highlights lessons learned and put forward recommendations to help refine and advance MCOF implementation in the coming years.
