The IOM is recruiting a consultant expert in Mainstreaming Migration into National Development Planning!
To ensure that the development potential of migration is fully realized and that sustainable development fosters the wellbeing of migrants and their communities in countries of origin and destination, it is essential to understand the linkages between migration and the goals and targets across the 2030 Agenda as well as develop methodologies to operationalize them.
To provide support to governments at central and local levels in improving their understanding of how migration is integrated into the SDGs and strengthening their capacities to formulate, implement, and monitor migration & development efforts in the context of the SDGs, The Labour Migration and Human Development Division in IOM Geneva will develop the Reference Guide on Operationalizing the SDGs in relation to Migration.
Specifically, the guide will aim to:
a. Raise awareness and understanding on the key concepts and issues related to migration & development in the SDGs;
b. Enable national and local stakeholders to adapt and implement the SDG framework to fit their
own migration & development context, ensuring that migration-related targets are reflected in the national and local policy priorities;
c. Develop capacities of national and local stakeholders in order to strengthen migration & development data systems and processes for monitoring and reporting on migration related aspects of the SDGs;
d. Develop a toolkit to guide the implementation of concrete actions geared towards achieving the migration related aspects of the SDGs.
Interested candidates are invited to submit their applications by June 4.
