Peer Exchange: Promoting Migrant Employability


About this event

PEGs are opportunities to showcase successes and facilitate learning between the 11 countries in the Making Migration Work for Sustainable Development Programme. They are continuous knowledge exchange and capacity development groups, open to all stakeholders (local and national governments, UN Agencies, private sector, civil society etc.). They aim to help you in your work by learning from other experiences and experts.
