ILO, UNDP recognize migrants’ contribution during the pandemic

Geneva, Feb 16 (Prensa Latina) Although migrants were among the most affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the global health crisis reaffirmed their extraordinary economic and social contributions, the ILO and UNDP acknowledged today.

In a report on the consequences of the disease for these people and their communities, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) said that many governments acknowledged that migrants bring knowledge, support and skills to countries of origin, transit and destination.

The two agencies noted that nations such as Argentina, Chile, France, Germany, Peru, Chile, Spain and France guaranteed migrants access to jobs in key sectors such as health and agriculture, while others such as Kenya extended visas and worked with employers to retain jobs.

Showing examples of tangible benefits for migrants and host communities, the report highlighted the importance of providing access to decent jobs and social protection, skills development and enterprising opportunities.

Both the ILO and UNDP agreed that the resumption of migration will be an important factor in boosting recovery after the pandemic, as long as it is safe and inclusive, and respects human rights and international labor standards.
