This project links two of IOM’s core sectors: emergency response and counter-trafficking/migrant protection. It is aimed at strengthening national and sub-national level protection capacity and resilience and contributing to the prevention of abuse, trafficking and exploitation while improving  access to assistance of victims among displaced and affected populations in emergency settings in Mozambique.

In cooperation with UNICEF, the National Institute for Disaster Management and the General Prosecutor’s Office, the project aims to reach the following goals:

  1. Government structures at national and local levels have increased capacity to prepare for and respond to protection concerns before, during and after emergencies.
  2. Increased capacities for the Humanitarian Country Team and clusters to mainstream protection in emergencies into their work.
  3. Affected populations know the risks associated with GBV, unsafe migration and exploitation and can follow referral pathways. 
  4. Mozambique, Malawi and Tanzania work together towards the creation of a cross-border platform for the protection of the rights of people with albinism
