In light of the rise in irregular migration and the abuses suffered by migrant’s en-route, notably in Libya, the scale of IOM’s response in West Africa is growing exponentially.

4. Support in the implementation of the Aware Migrants Information Campaign –Engaging West African Communities (EWAC).
5. Establish a Migration Information Hotline for migrants in transit. The information line will utilize Interactive Voice Response (IVR) to streamline voice and SMS communications.
