Brief on mainstreaming migration into development strategies from a gender perspective in Moldova

Authors/editor(s): Dorin Vaculovschi

This brief discusses how migration could be mainstreamed into the Moldovan development framework, particularly from a gender perspective, by elaborating policies, including the effects of migration. This requires mainstreaming migration and development issues in every phase of the development planning cycle.

In general, mainstreaming migration into the country’s development framework takes place in the following six phases: (1) situation analysis, (2) strategic goals and priorities identification, (3) action/programme planning, (4) resource/budget sourcing and planning, (5) implementation, and (6) monitoring and evaluation. Each step provides entry points for migration mainstreaming using a gender lens.

The brief is intended for professionals responsible for implementing diaspora policies in ministries and other central administrative authorities (migration focal points, technical level) concerned by this problem.
