Nepal Migration Profile 2019
Abstract:
This Migration Profile, which is a living document owned by the Government of Nepal, was prepared through the government-led, inter-Ministerial Technical Working Group (TWG), in consultation with a broad range of stakeholders and with technical support from the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The Profile is a capacity-building tool, which provides data and analysis on migration trends and their impacts in order to enhance policy coherence, evidence-based policymaking and the mainstreaming of migration into Nepal’s development plans. The Migration Profile provides an overview of trends, patterns, impact and governance of migration in Nepal. The data used in the analysis was collected from various migration data sources ranging from the national population census and national surveys to administrative records and other relevant data. The overall objective of the profile is to provide relevant migration data to facilitate effective policymaking, ensuring that migration can be successfully mainstreamed into the development plans of Nepal. More specifically, the Migration Profile serves to: map out available migration data sources on diverse migrant categories and their characteristics; provide a comprehensive evidence-based account of the country’s migration experience in a single concise document to serve as a planning tool for policymakers and practitioners; and present available statistics on migration stocks and flows in a concise and internationally comparable way. There are four parts to the Profile: Part A provides data and analysis of migration trends relevant in Nepal; Part B describes the impact of migration on key socioeconomic and development indicators; Part C presents an overview of migration governance in Nepal; and Part D presents recommendations for consideration of policymakers. #IOM #2019 #IOMNepal #NepalMigrationProfile2019 #InternationalOrganizationForMigration #TechnicalWorkingGroup #CapacityBuilding #MigrationTrends
