Launch of #MMN Field Guide Kit and Strengthening Partnerships for Safer Migration, Workshop Report

Over 40 participants attended the workshop, consisting of #MMN coordinators in Ghana, people from six key stakeholder organizations, and the media. They discussed the current status of activities that the stakeholders are undertaking in order to stem the tide of irregular migration and benefit more from regular migration. 

Those present included:

  • The Migration Management Bureau of the Ghana Immigration Service
  • German Consulate of the Embassy of Germany in Ghana
  • The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in Ghana
  •  International Organization for Migration, Ghana (IOM)
  • Africa Focal Point, Migration Working Group of UN Major Group for Children and Youth
  • Ghanaian-German Centre for Jobs, Migration, and Reintegration

Two main points emerged from the workshop. First, it was clear that there is a lot of potential to work together and that all stakeholders and communities would benefit from collaboration. All participants unanimously agreed that there are many benefits to communities and the nation  derived from managing and minimizing irregular migration and promoting regular migration. To this end, #MMN endeavors to pursue formal collaborations with most of these organizations in due time. The visit to the Ghanaian-German Centre for Jobs, Migration, and Reintegration is a step in this direction.

Second, #MMN proposed that networking among organizations should be strengthened by undertaking joint activities in communities. Joint efforts would strengthen results. Undoubtedly, each organization is already doing a lot to stem irregular migration. Yet even greater success could be had if organizations get to know more about each other and the work they do and work together.
