Goals and Principles
The EC-UN Joint Migration & Development Initiative aims to support civil society groups and local governments to become more active and effective in linking migration to development, in line with relevant policy frameworks. Proposed projects may have one or more of the following goals:
  • Facilitate networking for practitioners to learn from each other, and support to the creation of partnerships to strengthen the role of migrant groups in development processes and interventions in countries of origin;
  • Provide capacity building to eligible actors to help them advocate positions, formulate development interventions and deliver sustainable results;
  • Facilitate replication of current best practice; scale-up successful existing initiatives; and develop new, innovative projects that contribute to relevant development outcomes
Review criteria have been developed to evaluate project proposals submitted and help the Steering Committee to allocate funds to projects. The criteria are based on a number of overarching principles which provide a framework for the decision-making of the Steering Committee:
  • First, all projects proposed should be within the legal mandate and competency of the relevant actors of each consortium. It is recognized that mandates of local government and civil society actors to engage in activities related to migration and development vary from country to country.
  • Second, projects proposed should be fully in line with national development priorities and policies, as well as international conventions to which the relevant country is signatory.
  • Third, projects should offer tangible and measurable development impact in the relevant country. Applicant consortia must agree to the rigorous monitoring and evaluation regime. Part of the wider responsibility of the Joint Initiative is to map, assess and disseminate best practice in the emerging field of migration and development.
  • Fourth, project results should be sustainable, with a view to achieving ongoing development impact beyond the duration of funding from the Joint Initiative.
