M4D Net web platform
This video presents the JMDI or Joint Migration and Development Initiative’s M4D Net web platform, explaining the services it provides to promote knowledge exchange, capacity building and networking on the issues of Migration and Development with special focus on the local level, where the drivers and effects of migration are most strongly felt.
The M4D Net is more than just a website, it is global knowledge hub that reaches out to a global audience of over 4,000 practitioners and policy-makers working on or with an interest in migration and development.
The JMDI is a global interagency programme led by UNDP in partnership with IOM, ITC-ILO, UN Women, UNHCR, UNITAR and UNFPA, with funding from the European Union and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. The programme aims to maximize the potential of migration for local development through the delivery of targeted support to local authorities and non-state actors.
