Migration

La migration, un domaine prioritaire de la DDC

© DDC

Le parcours de vie d’un migrant a plusieurs facettes. Dans la plupart des cas, les migrants contribuent avec leur force de travail à développer autant la prospérité de leur pays de résidence que celle de leur pays d’origine. Lors de conflits et de catastrophes naturelles, les migrants doivent plutôt être considérés comme des victimes. Rendus vulnérables, ils nécessitent une protection particulière.

Dans son action, la DDC s’engage à traiter ces différents aspects de la migration. En plus de son travail sur le terrain, elle participe activement au dialogue politique sur le sujet. Les six thématiques suivantes résument son engagement.

Participation de la Suisse au dialogue international sur la migration

La DDC participe au dialogue international sur la migration dans le but de contribuer à améliorer la gestion de la migration et à atténuer la souffrance humaine qu’elle peut générer.

Réfugiés et déplacés internes

La DDC s’emploie à protéger les personnes réfugiées et les déplacés internes et à satisfaire leurs besoins fondamentaux.

Diasporas

La DDC crée des conditions générales favorables, encourage les échanges et met en œuvre des projets novateurs pour que les diasporas puissent contribuer au développement de leur pays d’origine.

Migration du travail

La DDC œuvre pour que les migrants soient informés sur leurs droits et pour qu’ils bénéficient de conditions de travail respectueuses.

Politique étrangère de la Suisse en matière de migration

La DDC met à profit son expérience et ses instruments pour servir les intérêts de la politique migratoire suisse dans le cadre d’une collaboration interdépartementale.

Swiss Civil Society Organizations Platform on Migration and Development

01.11.2018 - 31.10.2021

Obtaining a coherent and practical Swiss foreign policy on migration (acknowledging the potential of migration for development) depends on the close collaboration between Swiss officials, civil society organisations and the private sector. In its second phase, the project “Swiss CSO Platform on Migration and Development” will contribute to shaping a constructive narrative on Migration and Development, while further strengthening the Swiss Civil Society’s contribution towards the Agenda 2030 and the implementation of the Global Compact for Migration (GCM)/Global Compact on Refugees (GCR). 


Fair Recruitment and Labour Conditions of Migrant Workers

01.10.2018 - 31.10.2021

Many of the 105 million people working outside their countries of origin have fallen victim of exploitative practices by unethical recruiters and employers. This project aims to prevent abuses and exploitation of migrant workers. It responds to a demand by the private sector in the global North for ethical standards throughout their supply chains. The Swiss private sector will benefit from stricter standards of recruitment and decent work, while Swiss consumers will profit from consumer goods increasingly produced under fair and ethical standards.


Appui à la résilience de l’élevage pastoral en Afrique de l’Ouest

01.10.2018 - 30.09.2021

L’Afrique de l’Ouest connait une crise alimentaire qui touche environ 10 millions de personnes dont beaucoup d’éleveurs. Les plans de réponse des Etats et des institutions régionales ne mettent pas assez l’accent sur les éleveurs. Ce programme fournira une aide d’urgence à 174’240 éleveurs vulnérables de la région et améliorera les outils de distribution de l’aide dans les mécanismes régionaux et nationaux de gestion de crises alimentaire. Il réduira les conflits, en limitant les transhumances précoces.


Building Regional and National capacities for improved Migration Governance in the IGAD Region

01.10.2018 - 31.12.2021

The Horn of Africa is of high interest for Switzerland in terms of migration policy. Swiss support to the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and its Member States will contribute to improve their capacities to manage migration. Migrants and refugees will be better protected in the region and the contribution of migration to development of the Horn of Africa will be supported, hence stability promoted. The Swiss expertise and engagement at the policy level will contribute to foster a dialogue on migration between Switzerland and the Horn of Africa.


Somalia - Support to the Durable Solutions Initiative (DSI)

01.10.2018 - 30.09.2020

In Somalia, more than 2.6 mio people are internally displaced. Switzerland contributes to the provision of durable solutions for these people in the region by enhancing the awareness and the capacity of all relevant humanitarian, development and state-building actors under the leadership of the Somali Government. By addressing the underlying causes of protracted displacement, the affected people are offered the perspective of integration and self-reliance rather than migration.


Migrant Rights and Decent Work (MiriDew)

01.09.2018 - 31.08.2021

Remittances sent home by over 3 million Nepali migrant workers have significantly reduced poverty. Nevertheless, the rights of migrants are regularly violated. The proposed project will enhance the Government of Nepal’s understanding of overseas labour market conditions and strengthen mechanisms to better protect the rights of Nepali workers at home and abroad through better consular support and a strong presence in the international policy dialogue.


Safer Migration (SaMI III) project

16.07.2018 - 15.07.2022

Labour migration is positively affecting Nepal’s socio-economic development with remittances significantly reducing poverty. Nevertheless, the rights of migrants are often violated. The Safer Migration project will empower migrants and their families and strengthen government protection mechanisms. The project will benefit about 600’000 men and women in three states of Nepal and enable about 60 local governments to run foreign employment services.


Strengthening the capacities of Community-Based Organisations (CBOs) serving migrants in Egypt

15.04.2018 - 30.11.2021

In Egypt, Community Based Organisations (CBOs) are key actors in responding to migrant’s[1] basic needs. These include child and adult education, emergency assistance, medical and legal services. The project strengthens the ability of these organisations to provide these much-needed services. Moreover, CBOs will be empowered to advocate for migrant’s needs in the donor community and with decision makers. Reliable and sustainable services for migrants in Egypt also serve the migration interests of Switzerland.

 

[1]  The term migrant in this proposal includes refugees, asylum seekers, new arrivals in the “pre-refugee status determination phase”, (all nationalities identified by UNHCR) and vulnerable migrants (irregular and regular) residing in Egypt.

 


IBC-Improving protection, social cohesion and skills development services for Syrian and host communities in Kilis

01.04.2018 - 31.07.2019

There are almost 3.6 million Syrian refugees in Turkey, residing in different provinces across the country, mainly in non-camp settings. Their vulnerabilities are growing and tensions between them and host communities are on the rise. The national NGO IBC, active in humanitarian relief and emergency aid, aims with the proposed project to improve the living conditions of Syrian refugees, while focusing on strengthening social cohesion between host communities and refugees.


Eritrea UNDP Skills and Migration Project

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2019

The Swiss Development Cooperation will contribute to the second phase of this UNDP project aiming at expanding economic opportunities for youth through skills development and improving the enabling environment for employment creation and business.  In parallel, the project supports the Eritrean Government in improving its migration governance capacities. 


BiH – contribution to UNHCR for health care for refugees and migrants

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2019

About 5’000 migrants/refugees are currently residing in Bosnia and Hercegovina (BiH). They are stranded on their way to Western Europe. Many of them are malnourished, have injuries or diseases contracted during the journey. Some also suffer from chronic diseases and mental health problems. Switzerland supports around 1’000 migrants/refugees in providing them access to health care. This will improve health conditions of the migrants/refugees and prevent the spreading of diseases impacting on residents of Bosnia and Herzegovina.


Facility for Refugees, Migrants, Forced Displacement and Rural Stability (IFAD)

01.12.2017 - 31.12.2023

Switzerland is committed at the highest political level to help countries in the Near East and North Africa (NENA) region coping with the refugee crisis. By co-financing two projects funded by IFAD (the International Fund for Agricultural Development) in Jordan and Lebanon, SDC will contribute to create sustainable livelihoods for thousands of Syrian refugees, and will also support host communities to increase their income and food security by improving the quality of their small ruminants and cattle, as well as their value in the market.
