Assessment of Labour Market and Migration Information System in Ethiopia and Djibouti - ILO
Triangle’s study with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) – via its United Kingdom Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) funded project “Better Regional Migration Management” – found the need to centralise disparate labour information and migration systems in Ethiopia in order to harmonise operations across different bodies to produce labour market outcomes for migrants and host community workers alike.
A similar study was also conducted in Djibouti which found a need to bring the country’s labour and information management in line with international standards, increase national labour market surveys, and build the capacity of official bodies to document and analyse data on labour and migration.

- Improved the overall understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of existing labour market and migration related data collection and processing systems and mechanisms.
- Mapped existing official and non-official sources on labour market and migration related data.
- Identified key actors engaged in labour market and migration data collection in Djibouti.
- Identified challenges related to harmonisation of information related to the national labour market and migration.
- Identified challenges related to coordinating different information sources related to labour market and migration.
- Identified information and specific data needs to develop labour migration policies that are evidence-based, gender sensitive, and reflect real labour market needs.
- Identified concrete and feasible mechanisms to facilitate the sharing of labour market and migration related information among concerned institutions.
