Blomeyer & Sanz is evaluating an OECD project on migration
Blomeyer & Sanz is currently conducting the evaluation of the EU-funded project Interrelations between Public Policies, Migration and Development (IPPMD) implemented by the OECD. The project’s goal was to provide policy makers with evidence on the way migration influences specific sectors (i.e. labour market, agriculture, education, investment and financial services, and social protection and health) and, how sectoral policies affect migration. The research focused on four dimensions of the migration cycle: emigration, remittances, return and immigration. The IPPMD took place in ten partner countries: Armenia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Côte d’Ivoire, the Dominican Republic, Georgia, Haiti, Morocco and the Philippines.
In the framework of the IPPMD final evaluation, our evaluators attended the first OECD Development Centre’s Policy Dialogue on migration and development held in Paris in October.
In November, our evaluators conducted field missions in the Philippines and Georgia. The goal of these visits was to gain a better understanding of the local context and to meet the stakeholders involved in the project. The evaluators met with the IPPMD’s focal points at the government level, the local research partners, international organisations and relevant government agencies and civil society organisations.
