NATURE OF THE CONSULTANCY

Full  time  consultancy  to  Support  IOM  Brazil  in  the  Implementation  of  the Local  Migration  Governance Indicators (Local MGI) in the city of São Paulo.

From 02 January to 30 April 2019. Total BRL 18,000 in four payments (25% each).

What is the MGI?

Developed jointly by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU),  the  Migration  Governance  Indicators  (MGI)  is  a  set  of  90  indicators  that  helps  governments to assess the  comprehensiveness  of  their  migration  governance  structures, as  well  as  to  identify  good  practices  and areas that  could  be  further  developed.

The  aim  of  the  MGI  is  to  spark  an  inclusive  dialogue  on  how  to address   the   challenges   and   opportunities   stemming   from   migration. Since   2016,   39   countries   have participated in the MGI process.

What is the Local MGI?

Although  it  is  widely  recognized  that  the  vast  majority  of  migrants  are  city – bound  and  that  cities  are  the economic  engines  of  most  countries,  and  despite  recognition  of  the  critical,  central  role that municipal governments  play  in  international  migration,  cities  are  still  under-represented  when  discussing  migration policies and monitoring their implementation.

Building on the national MGI methodology, the Local MGI:

  1. Takes stock of local migration strategies or initiatives in place and identifies good practices as well as areas that could be further developed.
  2. Fosters the dialogue on migration between national governments and local authorities.
  3. Enables local authorities to learn from one another by discussing common challenges  and identifies potentialsolutions.
