UN Women releases in collaboration with IOM and ILO a call for interest to develop a regional model on reintegration
In support of the Governance of Labour Migration in South and South-East Asia (GOALS) programme’s interventions on reintegration, UN Women, in close collaboration with IOM and ILO, is seeking to hire a service provider to undertake the development of a regional model on reintegration that provides a sustainable solution to address gendered social, psychosocial, economic, including labour market opportunities and challenges for returning migrant workers.
This model should be applicable to the specific country needs and context of the South Asian Colombo Process Member States: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
GOALS is a joint regional programme that works towards safe, orderly and regular labour migration for all women and men from the Colombo Process Member States through strengthened collaboration and effective labour migration governance. The programme is implemented through a partnership between IOM, UN Women and International Labour Organization (ILO) with the support of Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
It envisions a three-year (August 2020 – July 2023) strategic and comprehensive focus for positive change, increased social and economic benefits for women and men migrant workers, their families and the countries of origin. Working with the Colombo Process Member States, guided by the Colombo Process Thematic Area Working Groups (TAWGs), the programme conceptualizes the links between countries of origin and destination and strives to strengthen governance from policy to practice, regional to national, and vice versa.
