IOM ACBC 2018 Annual Report (Report 2017 plus Outlook 2018)
IOM’s African Capacity Building Centre (ACBC) for Migration and Border Management located in Moshi, United Republic of Tanzania, has seen a very active and innovative year 2017.
Important work was done in cooperation with ICAO in the framework of ICAO’s TRIP Programme, based on the November 2016 MoU concluded between IOM and ICAO. Trainings on Travel Document Security, on Border Security and on Countering Migrant Smuggling (CMS) constituted other important thematic fields of intervention for the ACBC.
A special focus was placed on cooperation with the African Union (AU) and the various Regional Economic Communities (RECs) on the African continent.
For 2018, we specifically want to highlight ACBC’s increasing work with IOM’s African Member States on the issue of border management and development/trade.
