Context:Irregular migration along the Mediterranean routes is increasingly dangerous for migrants.Crossing the Mediterranean is by far the deadliest route, with recorded deaths of over 45,334 people since 2014 (IOM, 2021).In addition, human trafficking and other exploitative practices along the route are heavily affecting migrants during their migratory journey along migratory routes.To meet these challenges IOM, with support from the European Union (EU), has been implementing targeted interventions in 13 countries (Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and The Gambia) to protect the security, dignity and rights of migrants along these important and dangerous migration routes and to help in improving the reintegration of returnees through an innovative approach.This is achieved through different types of interventions including protection and assistance to vulnerable and stranded migrants, provision of direct assistance through search and rescue support, identification, referral and direct assistance to vulnerable migrants, assistance for voluntary return, support for sustainable reintegration in the communities of origin, the dissemination of accurate information on migration to migrants, potential migrants and communities, and the collection of data on migration flows.The aim is to strengthen the technical and material capacities of authorities and organizations involved in these areas so that they can ultimately take over the policies and Programmes related to the protection and reintegration of migrants developed and/or strengthened in the Region, with a view to improving the governance of migration in the region.Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading UN agency in the field of migration, works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners.
