IOM seeks to support governments, States and communities undergoing significant socioeconomic and political changes during and following a crisis, to (re)establish stability, prevent further forced migration and displacement, restore trust among community members, vulnerable populations and local authorities. 

In Haiti, IOM supports the return of state actors in terms of strengthening local services and reinforcing local leadership, particularly in areas that host Internally displaced persons (IDPs) or to which IDPs or migrants return to. The activities include the strengthening of inclusive dialogue and decision-making mechanisms at the local level; the promotion of inclusive access to essential services to Haitians living in conflict-affected areas; the rehabilitation of public infrastructure, e.g. rehabilitation of water points or the cleaning of public spaces; and the improvement of equal access to economic opportunities at community level and livelihood trainings.
