UN and ICMPD to help Armenia to develop strategy on migration and border management
The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) signed a project cooperation agreement for the Project “Support to Migration and Border Management in Armenia” (MIBMA) in Yerevan. The Project is fully funded by the European Union and implemented by ICMPD in partnership with UNDP.
The overall objective of the action is to enhance approximation of the migration and border management in Armenia to the European standards of governance, in order to increase security, facilitate trade and support the possible visa liberalization dialogue between the European Union and Armenia.
The Programme consists of two key components: border management and migration.
Under the Project a new migration strategy of Armenia will be developed as the current one expires in December 2016. A new strategy will correspond to the European standards and it will regulate the issues on integration, reintegration, labor migration, provision of political shelter as well as refugees accepted by the country.
