Southern Africa Migration Management Project
1. Background and context
The Southern Africa Migration Management (SAMM) project is a model of a ONE-UN approach collaborative effort between four UN development and humanitarian agencies: the ILO, the IOM, UNODC and UNHCR. The (SAMM) project forms part of the European Union Regional Indicative Programme (11th EDF RIP) for Eastern Africa, Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean (2014–2020) which includes among its objectives the facilitation of safe, orderly and regular migration and the prevention of irregular migration. It focuses on South-South migration flows, identifying positive spill over effects of international migration on regional integration and regional economic development.
Its overall objective is to improve migration management in the Southern Africa and Indian Ocean region guided by, and contributing to, the realisation of the 2030 Development Agenda (goals 8 and 10).
It is comprised of two main project components: 1. Labour Migration; and 2. Mixed Migration. The first component supports the implementation of the UN Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) and the second one the application of the UN Global Compact on Refugees (GCR), as well as of the GCM.
Regional Economic Communities (RECs) are key stakeholders in SAMM’s implementation. One of SAMM’s key project priorities is to support the formulation and realisation of International Labour Migration and Mixed Migration Frameworks of: i) the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), ii) the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and; iii) the Indian Ocean Commission (IOC).
The project focuses on the Southern African Region, and targets the following 16 SADC countries: Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Eswatini, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Against this background, the SAMM project intends to develop a Website, which is part of the Communications and Visibility plan of the project. The Overall objective of the Communications and Visibility Plan is to contribute to the effective implementation of the “Strengthening Institutional Mechanisms for Migration Management in the Southern Africa Region”. This work will ensure that information regarding the programme such as its objectives, results and achievements is accurately presented and effectively disseminated to the stakeholders and appropriate audiences in a timely manner.
According to the EU Communication and visibility plan for the SAMM project, the four UN agencies (ILO, IOM, UNODC & UNHCR) will strive to increase awareness on the need to establish and strengthen comprehensive and holistic migration management systems in the Southern Africa Region. The SAMM website will serve as tool to jointly communicate and increase awareness on the discourse of migration management in the Southern Africa Region. This is also highlighted in SADC’s Labour Migration Policy Framework, 2013. Its overall objective is to develop a harmonized regional policy framework to regulate labour migration within SADC that benefits sending and receiving countries, protects the rights of migrant workers, contributes to equitable and just development in the region, and builds on principles of mutual respect and cooperation.”
Output 1.4 of the framework is to ensure SADC citizens are informed and sensitized on labour migration policies in SADC through:
1.4 a) Communicating achievements of Action Plan to broader public
1.4 b) Support Member states in their communication efforts (sensitization campaigns to benefits of labour migration)
