Strengthening Labour Migration  Management Capacities in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Nepal and the Philippines for Replication in Other Colombo Process Member States


IOM is implementing a project ‘Strengthening labour migration management capacities in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Nepal and the Philippines for replication in other Colombo Process Member States’. (The Regional Consultative Process on Overseas Employment and Contractual Labour for Countries of Origin in Asia, commonly known as the Colombo Process, is comprised of: Afghanistan, Bangladesh China, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Viet Nam with eight observer countries: Bahrain, Italy, Kuwait, Malaysia, Qatar, Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.)  

The European Union (EU) supported project aims to contribute to strengthening target countries’ labour migration management capacities through improved monitoring of recruitment process; the project will assist the Government of Nepal in developing Standard Operating Procedures for ethical recruitment practices in the country. To promote safe and orderly migration and to improve the understanding of labour needs/resources and requirements of origin, transit and destination counties, better coordination and collaboration will be established through Colombo Process Senior Officials Meeting, Third Asia-EU Dialogue on Labour Migration and Regional workshop of Asian Alliance of Association of Overseas Employment services. Potential, current migrants and migrant source communities will have increased information on the migration process, legal opportunities, and their rights, benefits of regular migration and risks of irregular migration through better access to information on safe migration.
