Mainstreaming migration in development - the Naga City experience

Date published



This presentation details the experience of Naga City in mainstreaming migration in local development starting in 2010 when the MAPID project encouraged local government units to incorporate migration issues in their Comprehensive Development Plan. From 2011-2012, IOM assisted Naga City in piloting the mainstreaming process.

At the end of 2012, Naga City already organized its City Advisory Council on Overseas Filipinos and integrated migration in its CDP for 2011-2020. The paper was presented by Mayor John Bongat during the 2014 Global Forum on Migration and Development in Stockholm, Sweden.
