Introduction to 'Migrants in Countries in Crisis' Guidelines in Sudan
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Sudan conducted a two-day workshop on the 28th and 29th of March on the Migrants in Countries in Crises (MICIC), a global effort co-chaired by the United States and the Philippines, with technical support from IOM, which aims to improve the protection of migrants when the countries in which they live, work, study, transit, or travel experience a conflict or natural disaster.
States, the private sector, international organisations, and civil society are supported to prepare and respond to migrants’ needs and address their challenges during conflicts or natural disasters in countries that are facing crises using the MICIC Guidelines.
Guidance was provided to relevant stakeholders on how to prepare for and respond to crises by developing a contingency plan to respond to the needs of its nationals abroad during crises and provide the necessary assistances to ensure their protection in coordination with diplomatic missions.
The workshops are organized within the framework of IOM’s Africa Regional Migration Program funded by the Bureau of Populations, Refugees and Migration (PRM) of the U.S. Department of State.
