The Ethiopia Migration Programme (EMP) is a GBP 21 million programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DfID), aiming to enhance the protective environment for migrants and would-be migrants whilst reducing unsafe irregular migration through and from Ethiopia.

Meraki Labs designed and produced a mixed-methods protection analysis to determine the protection risks faced by migrants, would-be migrants, as well as camp and out-of-camp Somali and Eritrean refugees in Ethiopia considering onward movement. Meraki Labs provided programming recommendations aiming to strengthen the protective element of migration programming, focusing on harm reduction and integration services for returnees.
