HLPF 2022: Discussion Space for Migration is Open for Comments
Related Sustainable Development Goals and Global Compact for Migration Objectives
Join our new discussion space on migration, the GCM and the 2030 Agenda! Share your ideas about how we can strengthen the connections between the implementation of the Global Compact on Migration and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
In May 2022, United Nations Member States, the United Nations system, and stakeholders gathered for the first International Migration Review Forum (IMRF) of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM). They sent a resounding message: migration and sustainable development are inextricably linked. We will therefore not achieve the Sustainable Development Goals without attaining safe, orderly and regular migration.
The IMRF progress declaration outlines several commitments aimed to align GCM implementation with the achievement of the 2030 Agenda. This discussion space allows member states, stakeholders, and UN Network on Migration Partners discuss how to move forward with those commitments in fulfilment of the SDGs. This discussion is being launched in conjunction with the HLPF 2022 side event under the same name on 15 July 2022 [register here], and will remain open until 30 September 2022 for broad engagement of member states, stakeholders, and all partners. Contributions to the discussion space may inform the development of the Network’s global workplan 2022-2024, which aims to be adopted during the Network Annual Meeting in October 2022.
