The European Commission-United Nations Joint Migration and Development Initiative (JMDI) was launched in 2008 to support civil society organisations and local authorities seeking to contribute to linking migration and development.

The programme is funded by the European Union and represents a strategic partnership between the European Commission and the United Nations. It is implemented by UNDP in partnership with IOM, ILO, UNHCR and UNFPA.

Since 2008, the JMDI, thanks to the funding of the European Union, has supported migration and development initiatives from civil society organisations in 16 target countries, set up and reinforced networks of M4D actors, identified and shared good practices and fed this insight into policy-making on migration and development.
