UN Migration Agency, Indonesian Ministry of Manpower Expand Cooperation to Protect Migrant Workers

IOM, the UN Migration Agency, and Indonesia’s Ministry of Manpower have signed a Technical Agreement committing them to improve protection for migrant workers and combat human trafficking in the country’s eastern province of Nusa Tenggara Timur.

The agreement will focus on IOM support for the ministry’s Productive Migrant Villages (Desmigratif) programme, which targets the home villages of migrant workers to improve services for prospective migrants planning to work abroad and to improve the economic self-reliance and living standards of their families.

Nusa Tenggara Timur, one of Indonesia’s poorer regions, experiences high levels of outward migration, both to other parts of Indonesia and abroad.

At a signing ceremony in Jakarta on February 19th, IOM Director General William Lacy Swing highlighted IOM’s global experience in working with government partners to maximize the benefits of labour migration programmes. “The Desmigratif programme is an impressive initiative that combines the tools for protection and empowerment of Indonesian migrant workers and their families,” he noted.

“The Desmigratif programme is our newest approach to improve the protection of Indonesian migrant workers directly in their home villages,” added Hanif Dhakiri, the Indonesian Minister of Manpower.  “We truly appreciate IOM Indonesia’s activities on the protection of these migrants.”
