Promoting the Effective Governance of Labour Migration from South Asia through Actions on Labour Market Information, Protection during Recruitment and Employment, Skills and Development Impact (Project fact sheet)

The South Asia Labour Migration Governance Project aims to promote the management of labour migration from India, Nepal and Pakistan to the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

The project aims to provide migrant workers with more accurate and reliable employment information in the GCC countries by creating the South Asia-GCC Employment Information Portal and organizing pre-departure orientation sessions and workshops on the portability of skills. By engaging with governments, trade unions and NGOs, the project also intends to improve recruitment services, including lowering recruitment costs and strengthening the protection of migrant workers during their employment.
