    Tool for the Assessment of Bilateral Labour Migration Agreements Pilot-tested in the African region

    01 October 2019

    The objective of the assessment tool is to support governments, regional economic communities, and associated Member States and partners, including workers’ and employers’ organizations, in improving the effectiveness of BLMAs, to the benefit of both countries of origin and destination, and migrant workers themselves. The tool was piloted in the Egypt-Italy migration corridor and has also been partially tested in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region to assess labour migration agreements from Zimbabwe and Lesotho to South Africa.
