Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation



Supporting decent work through infrastructure development. This can help address unemployment as a potential determinant of migration.

Ensuring infrastructure is affordable and equitable to all migrants. Migrants can sometimes be disadvantaged in accessing transport, energy and other types of infrastructure, and should be proactively included in efforts to improve infrastructure access. This also includes access to financial services for migrants and migrant enterprises.




Relevant migration-related targets

  • 9.1 - Develop quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure, including regional and transborder infrastructure, to support economic development and human well-being, with a focus on affordable and equitable access for all
