Visit of the Head of Mission of OIM in Niger in Agadez

This month, Ms. Barbara Rijks, IOM's new Chief of Mission in Niger, accompanied by the Chargé d'Affaires of the Belgian Embassy in Niger, Pierre Charlier, and the First Secretary, Basiel Bogaerts, is being held for the first time in Agadez and the IOM transit center to meet authorities and staff, and to better understand IOM's field assistance and challenges.

During the mission, visitors had the opportunity to interact with the migrants staying at the center. Migrants shared their experiences with migration and discussed the return path as they prepare to return to their home country through the Voluntary Return and Reintegration Assistance (AVRR) program. IOM is supported by the European Union in Niger under the Migrant Resource and Response Mechanism (MRRM).
