Brussels – Deepened engagement between national and regional authorities on migration in the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries emerged as one of the most promising practices in the concluding analysis of a five-year, intra-ACP programme funded by the European Union and implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

“We have seen how regional and inter-regional peer-to-peer meetings boosted regional and South-South cooperation.
