EU: Initiative for migrant protection and reintegration in Africa along the Central Mediterranean migration routes

On  December 15th, 2016, the European Union, through the EU Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF), the governments of Germany and Italy, and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) have launched a new initiative to support African countries in responding to the urgent protection needs and tragic loss of life of migrants along the Central Mediterranean migration routes and in strengthening migration governance. The new “EU Trust Fund for Africa and IOM initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration of Returnees along the Central Mediterranean migration routes”, benefiting from a €100 million allocation, will cover the Sahel and Lake Chad region and neighbouring countries, including Libya.

Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice President of the Commission declared: “The European Union is delivering on its commitments. Our primary goal is to save lives at sea, to protect the most vulnerable, to provide possible alternatives to migration and ultimately to improving people’s lives. Our work with IOM helps our partners to better manage migration flows, to offer support to migrants in strained circumstances and provide reintegration opportunities to returning migrants. These are the commitments we took one year ago in the Valletta Summit, and then with the Partnership Framework on Migration, and the first results are coming. We will continue to deliver.”

Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica stated: “Migrants often become stranded along migration routes in Africa and the Mediterranean and find that they are unable to continue their journey. At this point, far from home and with no money, they are faced with difficult choices in order to survive or continue their journey. They become victims of criminal networks and are subject to trafficking of all kinds. Migration is not about numbers, it is about human beings. This new initiative will provide credible alternatives to those men, women and children that are the most at risk”.
