About Organization

Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners.

With 166 member states, a further 8 states holding observer status and offices in over 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

IOM initiated its work in Pakistan in 1981 following a government request for assistance with the influx of Afghans into the country. The organization has since expanded its programmes to support a broad range of activities from humanitarian response to migration management. Pakistan signed as a Member State of IOM in 1992 and established a Cooperation Agreement with IOM in October 2000.

As an active participant in the Delivering as One UN Programme in Pakistan since its inception in 2009, IOM co-leads the strategic priority area for “Increased National Resilience to Disasters, Crises and External Shocks.”
