Realizing post-2015 aspirations for migrants and migration
16-17 October 2014
This event is jointly organized by the UNITAR New York Office and the International Labour Organization as Chair of the Global Migration Group (GMG)
The linkages of migrants and migration with the development agenda are real and significant. Despite the increasing evidence that migration can bring tangible benefits—to countries of origin, transit, and destination, and most importantly, to migrants themselves—it has so far not been systematically integrated into development planning and practice.
This two-day event is an opportunity to exchange good practices between field and global level experts and policy-makers on mainstreaming migration into national development strategies with a view to developing practical guidance for national-level planning and programs. A related objective is to give effect to migration and development in the post-2015 UN development agenda and promote the inclusion of migration-related targets and indicators.
