Welcome to the seventh Edition of the IOM Zambia Newsletter. As the newly appointed Chief of Mission for IOM Zambia, I have the great pleasure to present this Edition, which contains highlights of our work from June to December 2017 and upcoming events for 2018.
IOM Zambia bids farewell to its former Chief of Mission Abibatou Wane, and welcomes her successor, Marianne Lane.
Migration is increasingly gaining prominence in the global discourse and development agenda, having received first mention in the Sustainable Development Goals and with at least one indicator fully focusing on migration.
IOM, the UN Migration Agency, supported the Government of Zambia to host a National Consultation on the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) in Lusaka on 2nd November 2017.
The UN Migration Agency (IOM), in partnership with the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC), participated in the IOM Global Migration Film Festival through the screening of a movie entitled Inside Story.
