Participation of the regions of Morocco in the Global Program of the International Organization for Migration (IOM)

At the invitation of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), three Moroccan regions participated in a delegation led by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans living abroad at the third annual meeting of the Council of the project's global program to place migration at the service of sustainable development, taken place in Geneva on 20 and 21 June 2023.

This delegation was composed of representatives of the pilot regions benefiting from the project, namely the Oriental, Souss Massa and Tangier Tétouan Al Hoceima regions and their respective Wilaya, the representative of UNDP Morocco and the two focal points of the project of OIM Morocco.

The aim of this meeting was to present the results of the project by country and to share successful experiences through activities responding to sustainable development and the ODDs. And secondly, to invite the participants to reflect on possible tangible projections in order to submit a reasoned proposal for the renewal of the project, with new objectives deemed complementary to the 3 initially successful phases.

It should be noted that this project is financed by the Swiss Cooperation Directorate and implemented by IOM and UNDP, with 11 beneficiary countries: Nepal, Ecuador, Philippines, Moldova, Jamaica, Kyrgyzstan, Senegal, Tunisia, Morocco, Serbia and Bangladesh. For its part, the Moroccan delegation recalled that this project is part of the deployment of the migration policies adopted by the Kingdom of Morocco, which aim at the access of migrants to basic services by integrating the migration dimension into sectoral strategies and planning documents. In addition, the meeting discussed key messages drawn from the experience of implementing the global program to be used to support advocacy actions in global dialogues.

The good practices identified at the level of the participating Moroccan regions in the areas of health, employability and governance, were of common interest to the representatives of the participating countries, as Mr. Salah Elaaboudi, Vice-President of the Eastern Regional Council.
