France renews its support to the IOM
An access to justice project amounting to 150.000 euros and funded by France will start in November 2016.
On October 10th 2016 at the French Embassy, the Ambassador of France signed an agreement with the IOM for an access to justice project for affected population (internally displaced persons and host communities) in Maiduguri, Borno State. Following the 2015 and 2016 psychosocial support projects which produced very satisfactory results, France is glad to reiterates its support to IOM. This project aims to provide legal information and advices to the affected population in order to equip them with knowledge about their legal option in Borno State. IOM will work with the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) as implementing partner in order to achieve the objective.
This meeting was also the opportunity for the Ambassador of France to discuss humanitarian issues in the North East with the IOM chief of mission.
