The platform known in the International Organization for Migration (IOM) parlance as Migration for Development in Africa (MIDA) is a holistic approach
to development programming that provides durable solutions to governments in
need by using the country's diaspora as the primary instrument. The Programme
which comes under the Labour Mobility and Human Development Division is so
flexible that it works well at all levels of government. MIDA can be calibrated
to provide solutions wherever gaps are needed to be filled. In many cases, MIDA
serves as a component of a broader development scheme. MIDA complements key
partners' broader development strategies by providing support to the social and
economic advancement of developing countries, to foster their national human
resource development and to counter the negative effects of "brain
drain" by encouraging "brain circulation" instead.
