"Almost Half Of Migrant Workers In The SADC Region Are Women" - IOM

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) and International Organisation for Migration (IOM) last Friday said almost half of the migrant workers in the SADC region are women.

In a joint statement, ILO and IOM said the importance of creating gender-responsive migration policies will be discussed at a tripartite two-day conference scheduled for Victoria Falls starting tomorrow.

The conference will run under the theme “Labour Migration Governance in the SADC region,” according to NewsDay. Read the statement:

The governance of labour migration as an instrument for development in Southern Africa will be put under the spotlight at a high-level tripartite two-day dialogue.

President Emmerson will officially open the high-level conference which seeks to find ways to foster fair and effective labour migration governance and the protection of migrant workers in Southern Africa.

It is designed to improve migration management in the Southern African and Indian Ocean region guided by, and contributing to the realisation of, the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda goal 8 on decent work and economic growth and goal 10 on reducing inequality and Objective 6 of the Global Compact for Migration (GCM) to Facilitate fair and ethical recruitment and safeguard conditions that ensure decent work.

Since almost half of the migrant workers in the SADC region are women, the conference will spotlight the importance of labour migration policies to be gender-responsive and evidence-based.

According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA, year), 47% of migrants are female.
