All the Regional Organizations having as a majority of its members ACP countries - such as AU, COMESA, CARICOM, EAC, ECOWAS, PIDC, SADC, etc. - can submit a request to the ACP-EU Migration Action for technical assistance on migration in the areas of focus of the ACP-EU Migration Dialogue.
The Regional Organizations define the kind of technical assistance they intend to receive depending on their needs and priorities. Such technical assistance can include, but is not limited to, activities in the field of institutional and legislation development; policy analysis or revision; capacity building; bi- and multilateral cooperation; and partnerships and agreements setting. Whatever the specific area of workis, such request must be within one of the five priority recommendations of the ACP-EU Dialogue, namely: remittances, readmission, visas, trafficking in human beings and smuggling of migrants.
