The objective of the Better Migration Management (BMM) programme is to improve the human-rights based management of safe, orderly and regular migration and to support competent national authorities in addressing the trafficking in human beings and the smuggling of migrants within and from the Horn of Africa region.
The project is commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and is co-funded by the European Union for the duration from October 2019 to September 2022. The project is implemented by a partnership of British Council, Civipol, IOM, UNODC, and the lead organisation GIZ. The target countries in the Horn of Africa are Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Uganda. The BMM II programme has three components:
-Strengthening of national and regional migration governance
-Increasing of national and cross-border cooperation on trafficking and smuggling
-Supporting and protecting migrants
As part of the implementation of the BMM programme, GIZ has a dual role of both coordinating the activities of the implementing partners based on the agreed-upon annual work plan as well as to directly implement certain activities.
One of the results GIZ is striving to reach under Component 2 is to increase the number of monitored, reported and followed-up cases of human rights violations against migrants, with a particular focus on women, boys and girls. To that end, GIZ is working in close cooperation with the CNDH-Dj (Commission Nationale des Droits de l’Homme de Djibouti) on a series of activities, including the sensitization of the local communities and the migrants on human rights, migration and the regional Information and Meeting Centres (CIRs in French).
To this effect, GIZ is planning to conduct two awareness campaigns for the migrants and the local communities on human rights, migration, and the use of the Information and Meeting Centres (CIR).
