The African Union (AU)-International Labour Organization (ILO)-International Organization for Migration (IOM)- Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) Joint Programme on Labour Migration Governance for Development and Integration (better known as the Joint Labour Migration Programme or JLMP) in Africa is a long term joint undertaking between the four organizations, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). It is the instrument dedicated to the implementation of the 5th Key Priority Area of the Declaration and Plan of Action on Employment, Poverty Eradication and Inclusive Development which were adopted by the Assembly of Heads of States and Governments (AU/Assembly/AU/20(XXIV)/Annex 3, January 2015) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, January 2015. Its strategy is focused on intra-African labour migration. It is in line with and supports achievement of the First 2023 Ten Year Plan of the AU Agenda 2063 and of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recently adopted by the UN. The Programme conducts coordinated and simultaneous interventions across two main

thematic areas: governance and operational implementation. The governance component addresses the critical need to develop in concert the four cardinal pillars of labour migration

governance: law based on international labour standards, establishing viable and coherent policy, strengthening core institutions, and engaging a whole society approach stakeholders Page 1 / 5including World of Work actors (Ministries of Labour, and employers and workers’ organizations) relevant government Ministries, diaspora associations, migration organizations and associations, academias, among others and cooperation among the main employment and labour market economic actors at the national, regional and international levels. The operational implementation component covers key inter-dependent technical operational

areas: decent work and social protection for migrant workers and their families, addressing the key constraint of skills shortages, and obtaining essential data and knowledge for governance of labour migration and protection of migrants. Each of these reflects a specific area of standards and policy and technical competences, each addresses distinct institutions and constellations of stakeholders, and each intersects with different international actors and distinct migration, employment and labour market structures.

In order to have a significant yet realistic take-off of the Programme a Three-Year Project was developed with the overall objective to improve the governance of labour migration to achieve safer, orderly and regular migration in Africa as committed in relevant frameworks of the African Union (AU) and Regional Economic Commissions (RECs), as well as international labour conventions and other cooperation processes. In order to achieve the overall goal this
