Danish delegation visit to the Eagle center

Last Saturday, IOM hosted in Eagle, the transit center for men and families in Niamey, the Ambassador of the Delegation of the European Union to Niger, Denisa-Elena Ionete, the Minister of Transport Cooperation for the Development of the Kingdom of Denmark, Ulla Pedersen Tørnæs, and the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Denmark to Burkina Faso, Niger and Benin, Ulla Næsby Tawiah. The delegation exchanged views on the development and cooperation of their countries and listened to testimonies from migrants.

Through its support, Denmark aims to strengthen the capacity of the Nigerien authorities in the field of migration management, facilitating the return of migrants through consular services and raising awareness among migrants on the risks of irregular migration and its alternatives.

Migrant assistance in IOM transit centers in Niger is supported by the European Union and the Danish Agency for International Development (Danida) under the Migrant Resource and Response Mechanism (MRRM).
