The Joint Labour Migration Program (JLMP) for Africa formally is a project which was adopted in January 2015 by African Heads of State and Government as a comprehensive programme on labour migration governance for the region. It is implemented jointly by the African Union Commission (AUC), the ILO, the IOM and the UNECA.

The AU-led initiative is the first global initiative focused on supporting effective implementation of human mobility rules as key to development and integration in the increasingly significant Regional Economic Communities (RECs).

The Joint Programme is built as a strategic regional intervention to leverage migration for development. The JLMP is also a creative work to achieve the key dimensions of the programme regarding the protection of the rights of migrant workers: portability of skills; portability of social security benefits; and fair recruitment practices.
