Introduction/Background

IGAD member states have also made commitments for achieving greater regional integration among member States, which is expected to bring about the expansion of trade, economics of scale and greater foreign direct investment, all contributing to accelerated economic growth. In 2013, the Summit of the IGAD Heads of State and Government adopted a Minimum Integration Plan to serve as a road map for regional integration, in which the free movement of persons is a key pillar. To this end, IGAD member states have entered into substantive discussions and consultations on draft free movement protocol.

In order to support IGAD and its member states towards free movement of persons and transhumance in the region, the ILO is implementing a three years technical cooperation project titled “Free Movement of Persons and Transhumance in the IGAD Region: Improving Opportunities for Regular Labour Mobility”. The project is being implemented in collaboration with the IGAD and its member states with the financial support of the European Union. The overall objective of the project is to improve opportunities for regulated labour mobility and decent work within the IGAD member states through the development of models of intervention, in the broader context of free movement of persons and labour mobility in the region.

The project has two major components: knowledge-building and operational implementation. As part of the knowledge generation component of the project, the ILO wants to recruit the service of a qualified consulting firm, which can undertake labour market analysis in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda to understand the overall economic, labour, employment and migration dynamics in the countries focusing on migration prone areas particularly places of origin transit and destination.
