Mobility Partnership Facility (MPF)

The Mobility Partnership Facility (MPF) is a new tool supporting Mobility Partnerships (MPs) and Common Agendas on Migration and Mobility (CAMMs). It will support the preparation and implementation of MPs and CAMMs as a rapid tool designed to provide targeted, flexible and tailor-made assistance. The operational implementation of MPs and CAMMs is supported through the MPF.

The MPF is an EU-funded initiative contributing to the operationalisation of the Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM). This initiative will also strengthen the cooperation between the European Union (EU) and partner countries in the area of migration and mobility.

Budget: € 5.5 million from three different funds

Duration: 35 months as of 1 January 2016.


MPs offer a framework for an enhanced and tailor-made dialogue, and operational cooperation with third countries in a wide range of fields related to migration and mobility, with concrete actions covering the four thematic priorities of the GAMM:

  • Better organisation of legal migration and fostering of well-managed mobility 
  • Preventing and combatting irregular migration, and eradicating trafficking in human beings 
  • Maximising the development impact of migration and mobility 
  • Promoting international protection, and enhancing the external dimension of asylum. 
CAMMs are an alternative framework for bilateral dialogue and cooperation. Like MPs, they set a number of common recommendations, targets and commitments.

More information on MPs and CAMMs is available here.
