Meet the Team

IOM’s Migration and Sustainable Development Unit (M&SD Unit) seeks to harness the potential of human mobility for sustainable development by improving migration governance, addressing forced displacement and addressing migrants’ specific needs and vulnerabilities. Safe, regular and orderly migration benefits all societies, migrants and displaced persons.

We empower migrants, diaspora and transnational communities as agents of change in support of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Global Compact for Migration. We work with local and national governments, civil society organizations, UN partner agencies, migration and development practitioners and other stakeholders such as the media and academic institutions to build and share knowledge, creating long-term partnerships and fostering holistic approaches. The Unit ultimately aims to help build stronger, more inclusive and resilient communities by integrating mobility into policy, practice and programming.
