Consultancy – IOM Kenya

Background and Justification
IOM Kenya in partnership with the National Coordination Mechanism on Migration (NCM) in Kenya under the Ministry of Interior and Co-ordination of National Government is in the process of implementing the programme Better Migration Management (BMM) managed by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and funded by the European Commission and co-funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development. The BMM programme takes a regional approach and aims to improve migration management, in particular to reduce the trafficking and smuggling of migrants within and from the Horn of Africa. The intervention is based on four components: (1) to strengthen national governments in pursuing a whole of government approach to migration and border governance (2) to strengthen the capacity of all institutions and agencies responsible for migration and border management; (3) to improve the identification, assistance and protection of victims of trafficking (VoT) and vulnerable migrants, especially women and children, in the Horn of Africa; and (4) to raise awareness of alternative livelihood options including safe migration.
Under the above Component 1 (policy harmonization and cooperation), IOM will contribute to develop comprehensive national migration policies. One of the key recommendations made during the NCM consultative workshop on the draft Migration Policy held in March 2017 was to review and update the “Migration in Kenya – A Country Profile 2015”. The data and key update will be crucial to finalize the Migration Policy. It is therefore an urgent need to review and to keep abreast with any emerging trends in migration and border governance.
