Migration and Reintegration Initiatives

With the growing spate of migration activities in Nigeria and the far more increasing rate of gruesome illegal migration caused by a declining economic growth in Nigeria, the fundamental mandate of the Migration and Reintegration unit of SEDIN is to create economic opportunities for returning migrants and the local population. This mandate is in cognizance of the general objective of the program focused at increasing sustained employment and income generation for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises(MSMEs). With the expansion of the SEDIN program to capture the Migration and Reintegration Unit, the dynamics of the focus group expanded to include returned migrants and local communities inclusive of intending migrants and the unemployed.

The Migration and Reintegration unit is collaborating with the Programme “Migration for Development” (PMD) through the Nigerian-German Center for Jobs Migration and Reintegration and the Skills Development for Youth Employment (SKYE) in a bilateral agreement that provides fused approaches towards solving the dynamic challenges of migration and reintegration in Nigeria. SEDIN Migration and Reintegration programmes are executed in three focal states: Lagos, Abuja and Edo State with extensions to Ogun and Ondo states.
