The theme for this year’s summit is “Climate Change, Human Mobility, and Sustainable Investments.”

According to a statement by JIFORM President Dr. Ajibola Abayomi, the summit, set to commence on November 28, will deliver on its commitment to providing valuable capacity-building opportunities. Attendees, including journalists, migrant workers, business owners, judiciary professionals, and others in the field of migration and economics, can expect a program akin to the successful previous editions.

The summit aims to conduct a comprehensive review of migration components supporting safe, orderly, and regular migration, ultimately benefiting humanity at large.
