The Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), comprising of the eight member states of Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda, was initially established in 1986 as the Inter-Governmental Authority on Drought and Development (IGADD) to co-ordinate the efforts of the member states in combating desertification and promoting efforts to mitigate the effects of the recurrent drought in the region. In 1996, the Heads of State and Government of the member states resolved to re-vitalize the Authority and expand its mandate to cover political as well as economic cooperation issues. Consequently, the Authority was re-named the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the Agreement Establishing IGAD was amended accordingly.

The IGAD region experiences numerous social development challenges that relate to migration, food insecurity, conflicts and economic hardships. These challenges lead to significant crises that impact on the socio-economic development of the IGAD Member States individually and the region as a whole. The role of IGAD is to contribute to the development efforts in the region. The Social Development sector is among the main IGAD priority sectors and covers programs like health, education, employment, social protection, migration, culture, population, youth and sports. Among the key Social Development sub-sectors is the IGAD Migration programme which has five strategic priorities such as: facilitating free movement of persons in the region to enhance integration; building regional and national capacities for improved migration governance; capacity building to address mixed migration; establishment of an IGAD Trust Fund for migration; and mainstreaming migration into IGAD Drought Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI), one the main flagships of IGAD development drive.
