Improving the capacity to understand migrants’ needs in the face of crises.

When conflicts or natural disasters erupt, they can disproportionately affect migrants living, working, studying, traveling, or transiting in the country experiencing the crisis. By integrating and engaging migrants in their work, emergency management actors can play a vital role in addressing these factors, lessening migrants’ vulnerability in the context of crises and improving responses. 

This IOM training course targets the personnel of emergency management institutions and first responders to strengthen their capacity to reach out to, assist and protect migrants before, during and after crises.
