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

01.01.2022 - 31.08.2027

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 migration governance capacities so as to enable the organisation to effectively implement regional, continental and global regulatory standards for the protection of refugees and vulnerable migrants in the region.


Horn of Africa: IFC - Private sector solutions for regufees and host communities

10.12.2018 - 09.07.2031

The Horn of Africa is fraught by political and economic fragilities and conflicts, leading to protracted displacement situations. They involve confinement in camps with few opportunities to establish sustainable livelihoods. Switzerland contributes to durable solutions for displacement-affected communities by promoting private sector development, leading to greater economic and employment opportunities and socio-economic integration in the region, which is in the Swiss interest.


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.


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. 


Eritrea Vocational Skills Training

01.10.2017 - 31.12.2019

The Swiss Development Cooperation will implement in this pilot phase 2 projects in vocational skills training in Eritrea. One project is designed as a contribution to ongoing projects of Don Bosco, the other to a project of the “Schweizerisches Unterstützungskomitee für Eritrea. The objectives of the phase are: (i) enhancing the training of teachers and increasing numbers of students having access to trainings and (ii) building a relation of trust with the Eritrean authorities in order to open a broader policy dialogue between the two countries


Eritrea Vocational Skills Training

01.08.2017 - 31.07.2022

The Humanitarian Aid of SDC has operated a program office in Asmara up to 2006. Due to implementation difficulties, it was decided at that time to close the office. Eritrea came again into the attention of the Swiss Government in relation with the high number of Eritrean asylum seekers. Most of them are young men. Domestic politics called to address this issue and the Federal Council decided to enhance its investment in young Eritreans in order to improve their life perspectives in their home country. Eritrea is a low-income country ranking generally at the bottom end of international development lists, it is ruled by the Peoples’ front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ). The Government slogan of “self-reliance” is linked to the country’s impression of being left alone by the international community (sanction regime in relation to Somalia). Controversial discussions about the Eritrean track record in human rights have influenced the relations between Eritrea and other countries. The main point of concern is the National Service, an institution that manages most of the services provided to the Eritrean population. Its sphere of influence goes beyond the military domain. Eritrea is in a “no war, no peace” situation with the neighboring Ethiopia. Strategic partnerships exist between Eritrea and China (natural resources and infrastructure) and Saudi Arabia (air and war vessel base in Eritrea for the Yemen conflict). Many Eritreans flee the country because they see no real life perspectives. Remittances are extremely important for the survival of the Eritrean population. With its future involvement, SDC aims at making a contribution to improve life perspectives of young Eritreans by training teachers in the field of vocational skills training and by enhancing the access of students to qualified TVET-institutions. The context is quite unique and a step by step approach, starting with a pilot phase of two years is justified.

SDC will support the institutional capacities of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Secretariat to formulate a regional land governance policy framework in an inclusive and participatory bottom-up process. This task will be facilitated by the Land Policy Initiative that is the mandated body by the African Union to implement the Declaration on Land. The Land Policy Initiative is contract partner and will technically assist IGAD.


IGAD-FAO Partnership Programme (PP) on Building Resilience for (Agro-) Pastoralist Communities

01.06.2014 - 31.12.2020

IGAD and FAO will jointly contribute to build resilience of communities in the Horn of Africa’s cross-border areas by addressing marketing and trade, transboundary animal diseases and natural resources management. It will also contribute to strengthen the capacity of IGAD specialized agencies to lead the regional agenda for the improvement of cross-border pastoral livelihoods.


Institutional Strengthening of IGAD

31.05.2014 - 31.12.2020

The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) is a sub-regional organization in the Horn of Africa. In line with Switzerland’s decision to increase its engagement with IGAD, the proposed contribution aims at strengthening the organization institutionally based on its political legitimacy, thematic relevance and capacity to contribute to peace and development in one of the world’s most fragile regions.

VSF Switzerland - Livelihood Puntland Somalia

15.05.2014 - 15.10.2015

Somalia continues to face food insecurity with more than 860'000 people in need of assistance. One of the identified reasons for this is the lack of adequate veterinary health service causing not only a decrease of available food for the local population but also hampering the high-potential livestock exports, preventing the country to develop. With this intervention along with its partner VSF, SDC aims to improve veterinary services in the semi-autonomous state of Puntland, thus improving the main livelihood of its inhabitants.

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

01.05.2014 - 31.05.2018

The Regional Migration Policy Framework, adopted in 2012, provides Member Governments of IGAD a good document to better govern migration and protect migrants within the Horn of Africa. However, their capacities to implement this strategy are limited. Switzerland will support IGAD to enhance their cooperation and coordination as well as build their capacities to address existing gaps of implementation. This will improve the wellbeing and protection of migrants in the region.
