The MIDA Experience and Beyond

Also available in:

Over the past ten years IOM’s experience in ac­companying governments through programmes, initiatives, studies and nu­merous conferences con­cerning Migration for De­velopment in Africa (MIDA) and similar initiatives in Latin America and the Car­ibbean, Asia and the Pacific have demonstrated that migration can bring signifi­cant benefits for social and economic development.

In order to share the good practices and lessons learnt with a wider audi­ence, such initiatives span­ning across regions have been assessed in this study to enable their further de­velopment. The MIDA pub­lication is hoped to provide a useful tool for govern­ments and other stake­holders to build a more strategic and practical ap­proach aimed at engaging diasporas and migrants in development efforts.
