  8. Strengthening Capacity to Implement Australia's Seasonal Worker Program in Papua New Guinea and Nauru

    1 September 2013 - 1 December 2014, Suva, Fiji

    Seasonal migration schemes, currently in place between selected Pacific Island countries and Australia and New Zealand respectively, are a valuable opportunity for Pacific Island countries to address unemployment, improve skills development amongst their citizens and stimulate growth through remitted earnings. Given that the schemes target unskilled workers, these programs have the potential to achieve developmental impacts for both workers and the communities and provinces they come from. Papua New Guinea and Nauru, as more recent entrants to the Australian Seasonal Worker Program, face various challenges in ensuring that institutions are in place to market, prepare and reintegrate seasonal workers. This project was aimed at addressing these challenges, helping to ensure that workers are prepared and protected to participate in seasonal migration, and improve management and visibility of the schemes so that employers are more likely to engage workers in future.
