    International Organization for Migration (IOM) Jobs in Kenya

    Evaluation Context:

    The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society.

    As the leading international organization for migration, IOM acts with its partners in the international community to:

  • assist in meeting the growing operational challenges of migration management;
  • advance understanding of migration issues;
  • encourage social and economic development through migration, and;
  • uphold the human dignity and well-being of migrants.

    Due to a variety of factors the Horn of Africa remains an area where volatile, insecure conditions continue to motivate large numbers of people to move within and across borders.

    These irregular migration flows include refugees, asylum seekers, smuggled and trafficked persons, and economic migrants.

    The push and pull factors mobilizing these population movements are varied, with some migrants fleeing from the Horn of Africa due to political unrest, persecution, and conflict, while others are leaving situations of extreme resource scarcity, drought, crop failure, food insecurity, and severe poverty.

    IOM has been working with government and partners in Kenya, Somaliland, Puntland, Djibouti, and Ethiopia to promote the humane management of these mixed migration flows through the Swiss funded project “Improving the Protection of Vulnerable Migrants Travelling through the Horn of Africa,”

    This project commenced implementation in 2010 and is currently in its third phase of funding.,

    The aims are:

  • Target populations demonstrate increased willingness to opt for safer migration options
  • Vulnerable irregular migrants and their host populations benefit from enhanced protection mechanism; and
  • Government officials demonstrate an enhanced understanding of their role in mixed migration, and a related willingness to coordinate with other relevant stakeholders.

    Evaluation Purpose:

    It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

    IOM and Switzerland conduct project and programme evaluations as part of their commitment to improved results based management.

    Evaluation results are used to improve decision-making and evaluate performance of the project partner, and to improve project and programme design and implementation.

    The purpose of this evaluation is to review the effectiveness and impact of the Swiss funded project, assess prospects for sustainability, identify links/synergies between this action and other existing initiatives that deal with mixed migration, identify and document lessons learned and best practices (M&E processes of the project design and implementation), and inform the development of follow up projects and programmes.

    Background:

    The United Nations Population Fund is an international development agency that promotes the right of every woman, man and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity.

    Improving Maternal, Newborn and Child health is a key global agenda. Although some progress has been noted, the goal of reducing maternal mortality ratio remains unmet.

    The Government of Kenya through the Ministry of Devolution and Planning (MDP) is mandated to facilitate and coordinate the national development planning process, oversee the implementation of Kenya’s Vision 2030 Development blueprint and provide leadership in the implementation of economic policies.

    With Kenya’s MMR of 488 per 100,000 live births, more than 6,000 women and girls are estimated to die each year as a result of pregnancy-related complications most of which are totally preventable.

    The proposed project to improve maternal and new born mortality in 6 high burden counties is aligned to existing in-country development and health policies and initiatives that aspire to increase access and improve quality of health services.
