End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Improving food security and nutrition for all. Inclusively addressing hunger and malnutrition would help address the lack thereof as a potential determinant of migration for some individuals and their families. Further, it is important to include migrants at all stages of the migration lifecycle in efforts to improve food security and nutrition, as they can be more vulnerable in this context.
Promoting sustainable agriculture. Strengthening climate change and other adaptation strategies for agricultural communities to help boost livelihoods and help prevent forced environmental migration, as this can help promote productivity and strengthen incomes.
Relevant migration-related targets

- 2.4 - By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality

The IOM Institutional Strategy on Migration and Sustainable Development outlines a whole-of-organization approach to comprehensively integrate migration and development into policymaking and programming within IOM. It recognizes that migration, when well managed, can be both a development strategy and a development outcome.
"Leave No Migrant Behind: The 2030 Agenda and Data Disaggregation" provides user-centric guidance on disaggregation of SDG indicators by migratory status. In order to leave no one behind, migrants must be considered across efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Meanwhile, migrants are also key actors in sustainable development.
