The Promoting Migration Governance in Zimbabwe (PMGZ) Project is funded by the European Union under the framework of the 11th European Development Fund and implemented by IOM in conjunction with the Government of Zimbabwe. The project seeks to support the Government of Zimbabwe to establish a migration governance framework (policy, institutional and legislative) in Zimbabwe that supports the Government of Zimbabwe to manage migration in dialogue with non-State actors and in a migrant-centered, gender-sensitive, rights upfront and development-oriented manner.
The project has two specific objectives, namely;
- to achieve strengthened institutional capacity and adoption of a coherent and gender-sensitive policy and legislative framework for a comprehensive approach to migration and;
- to enhance participation and contribution of Zimbabwean nationals in the diaspora in national development initiatives in close collaboration with the Government of Zimbabwe.
The project intends to contribute towards enhanced protection of migrants rights through improved migration legislation and coherent and gender sensitive migration management policy framework. Furthermore, the project seeks to achieve strengthened institutional capacity for coordinated migration management as well as improved modalities for dialogue and engagement of the Zimbabwean diaspora.
