The signing ceremony of a partnership programme between ICMPD and the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) took place on 14th September 2021 in Paris. The partnership programme was drawn up to further develop and strengthen the signatories’ long-standing partnership and institutionalise cooperation in the area of migration governance in a spirit of partnership and mutual trust, in order to create synergies between the activities of the signatories.
Aim of the project
The CAIR project aims to contribute to the creation of conditions for sustainable reintegration of Afghan and Iraqi returnees, individuals as well as families, in their communities of return.
Pillar one works to strengthen the capacities of Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation (MoRR) in Afghanistan and of the Ministry of Migration and Displacement (MoMD) in Iraq, as well as community based organisations that provide extended reintegration support to the returnees in both countries.
Pillar two works to sustain the reintegration efforts by creating platforms for the public-private collaborations to improve the access to employment opportunities for returnees and better link the provision of reintegration support to the national market needs.
