Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization field of migration and works closely with governmental,intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. With 169 member states,a further 8 states holding observer status and 393 offices in over 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. IOM started its operations in Nepal in 2007 facilitating resettlement of Bhutanese refugees to 8 countries. Since then, IOM has expanded significantly both in terms of programme areas, target populations and has contributed to government of Nepal's efforts to manage migration more effectively through wide range of programmes.
Nepal has a long history of dynamic population mobility and recent years have seen an upsurge in the complexity of migration patterns. An increasing number of Nepalese, especially the young adults, are seeking better opportunities abroad. Over half of all Nepali households have at least one family member currently in abroad as a migrant or living in Nepal as a migrant returnee. Migration contributes significantly to national development and resilience to economic and environmental risks and shocks. At the same time, migration experiences often come with risks and vulnerabilities. Many migrants face abuse, forced labour, exploitation, health risks and life-threatening conditions. IOM is a member of United Nations Country Team and works within the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) whose strategic areas are derived from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Nepal’s Fourteenth National Development Plan.
