Coherent policies that promote a whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach to migration governance and emphasize the links between migration and development are at the core of well-managed migration. The Government of Mozambique and its partners are at a crucial moment to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as they prepare to develop the Government’s migration policy, the Government’s new 5-Year Plan for Sustainable Development and the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework. IOM will support the mainstreaming of migration management across policy and legislative instruments through key research relevant to policy development. IOM will also strengthen data gathering, analysis and use that allows evidence-based decision-making on the most pressing migration-related topics. This focus area will contribute to the achievement of the SDGs, as migration is cross-cutting across all goals.

Objective: Support the Government of Mozambique to maximize the positive contributions of migration and migrants to support the achievement of the SDGs.
