The project aims to enable governments and their partners in Ethiopia and Ghana to mainstream migration into national development policies and to achieve policy coherence in line with SDGs. With the goal of fostering a ‘whole-of-government’ migration and development (M&D) approach, the project will develop coherent national SDG strategies; enhance coordination across governments; and develop capacities to collect data, plan, implement, monitor and evaluate progress on the national SDG indicators. Activities will differ across countries, depending on the existing evidence base, status of migration policy development and the institutional framework.
