IOM participates actively in the region through preparation, response, and recovery in crises and emergency contexts.

Thus, the "Migration Crisis Operational Framework" (MCOF) was developed in 2012 as a practical, operational, and institutional tool that allows IOM to provide support to the Member States and their partners to strengthen preparation and response actions in emergency contexts.

Based on MCOF, the Regional Migration Program helps in return, reintegration, preparation, and response for migration flows, and the human rights protection of the population in the region in emergency situations.
