Within the framework of the EU and Swiss Confederation co-funded LIBMITAF project, ICMPD organised a preparatory session and accompanied the Libyan Delegation to the Khartoum Process Senior Officials’ Meeting in Kampala, Uganda.
ICMPD has successfully supported the participation of Libyan delegations to regional and international migration dialogues since 2017. After two years of virtual meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ICMPD again had the pleasure to accompany a Libyan Delegation to the Senior Officials’ Meeting of the Khartoum Process. In preparation for the meeting, ICMPD organised a preparatory session for the Libyan Delegation to brief them on the agenda, the main points of discussion and procedural matters of the dialogue and the meeting. During the Senior Officials’ Meeting, the Libyan Delegation also had the opportunity to bilaterally meet with several other delegations.
Libya is a member of the Khartoum Process, also known as the EU – Horn of Africa Migration Route Initiative, which is a platform for political cooperation between the countries along the migration route between the Horn of Africa and Europe. The ICMPD-implemented LIBMITAF project supports, among other, the participation of Libyan delegation in international and regional migration dialogues, including the Khartoum Process, which contributes to enhanced cooperation and collaboration between countries of origin, transit, and destination.
The “Libya’s Migration Technical Assistance Facility” (LIBMITAF) project is co-funded by the European Union and the Swiss Confederation (represented by the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) and the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, acting through the Peace and Human Rights Division (PHRD)).
