Dear Steering Group Member,

In follow up to our discussions on 1 October in Geneva, I would like to thank you for your comments on IOM's outreach efforts and again invite you to contribute to its effective completion.

Some of you pointed to gaps in our outreach resulting in groups or individuals who are not yet aware of IOM's compensation programmes. If you know about such groups or individuals, we would highly appreciate if you could identify them for us and make a concrete proposal as to how best to reach them. The additional outreach funds IOM recently obtained from the German Foundation could, i.a., finance such proposals.

In order to enable us to tackle this issue as quickly as possible, we would greatly appreciate to receive your ideas, proposals and comments by noon Thursday, 18 October. Please address your replies directly to Marie-Agnes Heine (

Thank you very much for your continuing support.
Best regards,

Dirk De Winter
Director, Compensation Programmes
