Country: Ethiopia

Closing date: 10 Dec 2021

Duty Station of the Consultancy: Addis Ababa (Ethiopia)

Duration of Consultancy: three months (13 December 2021 – 6 March 2022)

Nature of the consultancy: Mapping of available services for migrant protection and assistance at the Ethio-Sudanese border and assess the protection risks faced by Ethiopian seasonal migrant workers in Sudan

Project Context and Scope:

Established in 1951, International Organization for Migration (IOM) is the leading intergovernmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants. IOM Ethiopia through Migration Management Unit (MMU) works closely with the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) to improve migration management and governance. It also supports the government in countering human trafficking and smuggling of migrants (SoM) and promoting regular labour migration channels as well as the migration-development nexus.

With the generous contribution of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, IOM Special Liaison Office (SLO) in Ethiopia and IOM Mission in Sudan are implementing a set of cross-border activities under an IOM project titled ‘Reducing vulnerabilities leading to onward movements among vulnerable migrants in eastern Sudan’. The project aims to reduce vulnerabilities leading to onward movement and build resilience of migrants in eastern Sudan through working towards various outcomes, including the availability of consistent access to direct assistance and support for safe and dignified return and sustainable solutions for vulnerable Ethiopian migrants in Gedaref and Metema.

The need for provision of protection and assistance services to stranded migrants at Metema (Ethiopia) which shares land borders with Gedaref state has been steadily increasing in the past years. The MRC Metema provides direct lifesaving assistance to migrants found in vulnerable situations around border areas, including temporary shelter, food and water, medical screening and referral, NFIs based on needs, information on safe migration, onward transportation allowances for migrants to safely reach their areas of origin and family tracing and reunification for unaccompanied and separated children.

For example, in March 2021 alone, IOM Ethiopia registered 424 Ethiopian returnees at the point of entry (PoE) between Metema and Gallabat. These groups of intercepted migrants include potential victims of trafficking, unaccompanied migrant children and migrants with serious medical needs. In order to strengthen the protection and assistance services offered at its border point, IOM SLO Ethiopia and IOM Mission in Sudan aim at supporting the establishment of referral pathways between Sudan and Ethiopia.

The proposed initiative will focus on facilitating referral of vulnerable migrant cases between the two MRCs by strengthening their referral capacities and coordination mechanisms with key governmental authorities and stakeholders around this border point.

The MRC Gedaref, which is located in the Gedaref town with 4-hour drive from the PoE, provides medical assistance, psychosocial support and legal assistance to vulnerable migrants stranded or living in Gedaref state through referral to its local partners. The centre also provides assisted voluntary return and reintegration (AVRR) support to the migrants in coordination with the Migrant Resource and Response Centre (MRRC) in Khartoum.

The project also aims at enhancing the protection of Ethiopian seasonal migrant workers in Gedaref through raising the migrants’ awareness of their rights as migrant workers and where to seek support. To better understand the protection risks faced by these seasonal migrant workers, this project will support an assessment in the areas of origin of these workers in Ethiopia, their living conditions in Sudan, the health and occupational injury risks faced by them, and the protection risks that they might face. This assessment will feed in the production of post-arrival orientation (PAO) modules for the seasonal migrant workers to be developed in close coordination with the Ethiopian Consulate, Ethiopian community and the local authorities in Gedaref, in particular the Immigration and Labour offices.
