Leaving something behind – Migration governance and agricultural and rural change in ‘home’ communities
The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) (https://www.iwmi.cgiar.org/), in collaboration with partners of the AGRUMIG project, organised an end-of-project meeting on December 6 and 7, 2022, in Brussels, Belgium. The meeting sought to examine research results and implications for policy across the project’s seven focus countries – China, Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Morocco, Nepal, and Thailand, demonstrating how better-informed policy can support more effective migration governance. The two-day meeting – with day one focused on research results and day two on their policy implications – convened stakeholders comprising researchers, government officials, international organizations, independent non-governmental organizations, and graduate students (see attendance list in Annex 3). The meeting included presentations from project team members from various AGRUMIG countries and partners, including UN Women, panel sessions, and remarks from the European Commission and the European Parliament. The sessions were followed by plenary discussions in which participants gave feedback on various topics. Finally, there was a reflective session where participants clustered ideas on migration and development.
