This action aims to improve the protection of the most vulnerable migrants on the migratory routes of West Africa, especially young people and women, by guaranteeing their access to basic services (access to health care, education, security, accommodation, marital status) and protection services (psychosocial follow-up, legal aid, etc.).
The action will contribute to adapting these protection services to migrants' needs in the Sahel and Lake Chad region and will cover the following countries: Senegal, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, Mali, Niger and Mauritania. The project will complement and coordinate closely with other initiatives in targeted countries, especially those supported by the EUTF.
The overall objective of the action is to ensure the protection of the most vulnerable migrants and their access to basic services, thereby improving migration management, particularly in Senegal, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Côte d Ivory, Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, Mali, Niger and Mauritania.
The specific objectives are:
(SO1) to ensure the support and protection of migrants along migratory routes and their access to basic services
(SO2) to strengthen capacity of institutional and local actors who provide support for the protection of vulnerable migrants.
