Migration and the 20130 Agenda
21 Sep 2017 -  Migration is one of the defining features of the 21st century and can contribute to achieving the 2030 Agenda. For this to happen, we need a better understanding of how migration will impact the achievement of key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the roles of international and national actors in this process. The Global Compact on Migration provides a unique opportunity to advance this agenda, and better explore the relationship between migration and development. This official United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) side-event is co-hosted by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and the Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations. It will discuss why migration is so pivotal for sustainable development, and will detail how national governments can take these issues into account. At this event, ODI will launch the final two briefs in our Migration and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development series and a synthesis report. As part of this discussion, an expert panel will reflect on top-level findings from across the series – providing practical policy actions for national governments.
