M4D Library

 

The repository collected over more than six years represents a joint effort of the M4D Net Facilitation Team and the M4D Net members to make available to the wider community the latest findings in the field of migration and development with a view to filling potential knowledge gaps and move the migration and development agenda forward through evidence-based research.

The e-Library is searchable by keyword, document type, thematic area, focus area and year of publication. Being a member of the M4D Net Community also allows you to upload documentation that you wish to share with others through the e-Library.

"The current research on the benefits of high-quality early childhood education and care (ECEC) leaves little doubt that early interventions have both short- and long-term advantages. Quality ECEC can have substantial positive impacts on young children’s social, emotional, cognitive, and language development, with long-term effects on educational achievement, occupational success, and health. These advantages are particularly critical for children with certain risk...

Vivimos en un mundo cada vez más urbano. En 2014, más del 54% de los habitantes del planeta residía en zonas urbanas. Es de prever que para 2050 la población urbana, que actualmente asciende a 3.900 millones de personas,alcance unos 6.400 millones. La migración propulsa la creciente urbanización, lo que contribuye a una gran diversificación de las ciudades. Prácticamente uno de cada cinco migrantes vive en las 20 ciudades más grandes del mundo. En muchas de ellas los migrantes representan más de un tercio de la población. Otras ciudades han registrado un notable aumento de la migraciónen los...

Nous vivons dans un monde qui ne cesse de s’urbaniser. En 2014, plus de 54 % de la population mondiale habitait dans des zones urbaines. D’ici à 2050, la population urbaine devrait passer de 3,9 milliards de personnes aujourd’hui à quelque 6,4 milliards de personnes. La migration est un moteur important de cette évolution, qui transforme les villes en des lieux de vie caractérisés par une grande diversité.

Il ne recommande pas de politiques ou programmes uniques, mais fournit plutôt des orientations, des idées et des suggestions pour aider les pays à se tailler une approche sur mesure, utile dans leur propre contexte. Ce manuel est...
