Organizational Unit: Migration Management
IOM Classification : Consultant
Type of Appointment: Consultant, 3 months

Working under the direct supervision of the National Programme Officer (MM), IOM Abuja and in close coordination with FMHDSD and NCFRMI, the successful candidate will be expected to facilitate capacity building workshops for Management of FMHDSD and staff of NCFRMI National Migration Policy and stakeholders from five states of high return on the National Migration Policy, the Margination Governance framework, and relevant national, regional and global instruments.
Migration in Nigeria is triggered by a combination of multifaceted factors such as insecurity, food and nutrition crises, demographic pressure in addition to more traditional seasonal and socioeconomic drivers. In December 2016, to address some of these challenges and respond to the needs of vulnerable and stranded migrants, the EU and the IOM developed the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration.
To ensure better management of Migration in the Country, Nigeria had in 2015 adopted a National Migration Policy (NMP).
The NMP recognizes Return, Readmission and Reintegration (RRR) as a fundamental component of Migration Management.
Hence, one of the five (5) migration thematic groups created by the NMP is the thematic group on Forced Migration, Return, Readmission and Reintegration (FMRRR). In line with its institutional mandate and the NMP, the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants, and Internally Displaced Persons (NCFRMI) coordinates the thematic group on FMRRR. The NMP also urges the creation of standards, procedures, and modalities for the conduct of RRR in Nigeria.
In line with this and with operational and technical support provided within the implementation context of the EU/IOM JI, the SOP on RRR was revised and validated by stakeholders on 2nd October 2019.
The SOP seeks to close the gaps identified in the implementation of the first SOP, by introducing fundamental innovations in the conduct of RRR in Nigeria. These improvements include: integration of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and more MDAs with roles In the RRR process.
SOP also identified and clarified key terminologies, incorporated data protection principles and underlying principles guiding the whole process as well as gave elaborate details and timelines for activities covering all phases of the RRR process, ranging from predeparture, transportation/transit, arrival, and reintegration assistance as well as monitoring and evaluation.
Furthermore, the SOP made adequate provisions for reintegration assistance to all returnees and tailored assistance to migrants with specific needs.
The consultancy is implemented within the Special Measures Programme. The Special Measures Programme is a continuation of the EU-IOM Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration and as such, builds upon and complements the existing local, national, and regional partnerships.
The Programme including the interventions on the protection, return, reintegration, and sensitization activities is implemented in close collaboration with the government authorities at national and local levels.
In this regard, the need to build the capacities of MDAs with the mandate to provide services to returning Migrants was identified a major priority for the country with the aim of ensuring the operationalization of the SOP on RRR.
To this end, the consultancy will provide technical assistance to MDAs at the Federal and state levels with the aim of enhancing their knowledge on the provisions of the National Migration Policy, the Migration Governance framework, and relevant national, regional, and global frameworks.
The overall objective of the consultancy is to enhance coordination, collaboration, and complementarity for an effective and sustainable RRR regime and overall effective migration governance in Nigeria.
