Coherence of labour migration, employment, education and training policies in the ECOWAS subregion

In an attempt to address the labour migration governance challenges, which stem from, among others, the lack of coherence among the migration, employment, education and training policies, the ILO has prepared 'General practical guidance on promoting coherence among employment, education and training, and labour migration policies'. The present report summarizes the main findings and recommendations from piloting this guidance in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and will allow the ECOWAS Member States to have up-to-date analyses and recommendations on how policy coherence can be enhanced in the sub-region. This report is issued within the framework of the Support to Free Movement of Persons and Migration in West Africa project (FMM), funded by the EU and ECOWAS.
