The Joint Migration and Development Initiative (JMDI) is a global inter-agency programme led by UNDP in partnership with IOM, ITC-ILO, UN Women, UNHCR, UNFPA and UNITAR, with funding from the European Union and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
It focuses on the local dimension of migrants’ contribution to development and aims to maximize the potential of migration for local development. To achieve this, the JMDI provides technical and financial support to up-scale existing locally-led migration and development initiatives across 15 projects in eight target countries: Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Morocco, Nepal, Philippines, Senegal and Tunisia.
It also provides capacity building for project partners and supports a large community of practitioners connect, share knowledge and link up to national and international dialogue on migration and development through our online knowledge platform - www.migration4development.org - and through international events on migration and development.
