The ILO’s Better Regional Migration Management Project focuses on laying the foundations for improving labour migration governance in East and Horn of Africa by promoting evidence-based policies, enhancing migrant workers’ qualifications and skills, and actively engaging the social partners for improved development outcomes. As part of its implementation strategy, the BRMM project seeks to develop a pool of consultants who are knowledgeable of the Approach to Inclusive Market Systems (AIMS)

AIMS is a methodology developed by the ILO in collaboration with the UNHCR, as part of a partnership launched 2013. The ILO applies the “Making Markets Work for the Poor” approach to contexts characterized by forced displacement. Whereas traditional approaches tend to focus on “refugee livelihoods” and strengthening skills and competencies of migrants, refugees and returnees (e.g. through vocational training), the ILO introduced the “push-pull approach” that seeks to work on both, the demand and supply, sides of the labour market. AIMS therefore offers a holistic and market-based framework for livelihoods strategies.
