Mandate and Mission

The Migration and Development ShareWeb is the online platform for the SDC's development and humanitarian aid practitioners that enables them to share their interests, experience and knowledge on migration issues with other colleagues.  It also aims at fostering a better understanding of the nexus between migration and development.

The network consists of SDC staff and partners working in different thematic fields and regions of migration and development.

The network's goals are:

  • to inform interested people of key facts or news concerning the migration sector
  • to report on migration-relevant projects and programmes in the different SDC departments and sections
  • to facilitate enhanced interaction between the network members and to foster the exchange of knowledge and experience
  • to capitalise on practitioners' experience in the area of migration and development
  • to discuss the nexus of migration and development
  • to help better integrate the 'migration for development' aspect into relevant SDC programmes and policies.
