IOM is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants
The project aimed to contribute to effective migration management in the Black Sea region as well as combating irregular migration through strengthened regional cooperation and capacity building of relevant authorities in all twelve member states of the BSEC.
In January 2008, IOM will launch the new project “Testing New Channels and Products to Maximize the Development Impact of Remittances for the Rural Poor in Georgia”.
In the last several years, migrant remittances have received an increasing amount of attention from policymakers.
In 2003, gross flows to developing countries amounted to US$ 142 billion, compared to US$ 18.4 billion in 1980.
