Local Ownership Ghana

The project strives to improve the collaboration on all processes related to return and reintegration between the Government of Ghana and EU Member States. It aims at increasing the Ghanaian Administration’s ownership in coordination of reception of returnees, as well as the quality of reintegration services offered to returning migrants.

During the first phase of the project, a Migration Information Centre for Returnees (MICR) at Kotoka International Airport in Accra was set up and capacity building activities for Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) were organised, with regard to reception of returnees. The second phase focused on improving inter-agency communication and further strengthening the capacity of governmental agencies to provide assistance to returnees. The last phase of the project focused on the development of the airport reception desk and the activation of government services that are relevant for returning migrants.

The project closed in September 2023.
