Against the backdrop of 281 million international migrants, over 26 million refugees and more than 48 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) worldwide (IOM, 2020), the support and integration of refugees and migrants remains a global priority, and one that calls for immediate and concerted action.

The project is expected to:

inform national RVA policies and frameworks for migrants and refugees, and support simple and effective mechanisms for their skills recognition. The project will focus initially on selected target countries, with the aim of including more countries as the project evolves. This will require the involvement of major stakeholders: authorities, employers and trade unions, as well as NGOs and target group organizations.
