Training Tools


Training Tools have been developed under the programme to assist in building the capacity and expertise of the wide range of actors involved in the field of migration & development.

The JMDI has created two e-learning courses to help enhance the capacities of actors working in migration and development: (i) My JMDI e-Toolbox on migration and local development and; (ii) Running your M&D project successfully. Both of these courses are outlined in more detail below. Through these self-guided courses, users can learn about the linkages between migration and development and how these can be harnessed to foster development, how to implement a project or initiative based on project cycle management, and specifically how local authorities, in partnership with other local actors, can mainstream migration into their development plans and policies for enhanced development.

These courses are free and can be taken at the user’s pace.
