The Adama City Initiative in Ethiopia improves the reception, management, and integration of rural-urban migrants with a voluntary registration scheme, resource centre, networking, and infrastructure development.

The initiative is part of the Cities Alliance Global Programme on Cities and Migration, which focuses on migration management in secondary cities in low-income countries and is supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). For the project, Cities Alliance cooperates with The Adama Science and Technology University (ASTU) in partnership with Adama City Level Labour and Social Office.

The video shares the stories of internally displaced people in Ethiopia and how a local protection center provides them with registration and ID – an essential first step in managing migration and enabling migrants to participate in the formal labour market.
