KNOMAD - Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development

KNOMAD is a global hub of knowledge and policy expertise on migration and development issues. KNOMAD draws on experts from all parts of the world to synthesize existing knowledge and generate new knowledge for use by policy makers in sending and receiving countries. KNOMAD works in close coordination with the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) and the Global Migration Group (GMG). The World Bank has established a multi-donor trust fund to implement the KNOMAD. The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) are the largest contributors to the trust fund. Within the World Bank, KNOMAD is located in the Development Indicators Group of the Development Economics Vice-Presidency (DEC). KNOMAD is led by Dilip Ratha.

KNOMAD's core objectives are:

  • generating and synthesizing knowledge on migration issues for countries;
  • generating a menu of policy choices on multidisciplinary knowledge and evidence; and
  • providing technical assistance and capacity building to send and receiving countries for the implementation of pilot projects, evaluation of migration polices and data collection.
