• New Mixed Migration Platform launched in MENA

    Monday, October 31, 2016

    AMMAN, Jordan — On Monday, seven NGOs launched a mixed migration platform to deliver research, analysis and policy recommendations for a better understanding of mixed migration patterns in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and enhance the protection of, and information available to, people on the move.

    The Mixed Migration Platform (MMP), funded by the UK and Switzerland, aims to provide quality information and protection-sensitive analysis to improve decision-making, both for people on the move through the Middle East and Europe, as well as host governments and humanitarian organisations who are involved in the response.

    At least 1,000 people are now feared dead in the wake of the devastating hurricane that hit Haiti on October 4th.
