Migration and the 2030 Agenda: A Guide for Practitioners
A new guide from IOM for government actors involved in implementing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as they relate to migration. The guide aims to help policymakers integrate migration into local and national development planning.
Implementation of the SDGs provides an opportunity to protect and empower mobile populations to fulfil their development potential and benefit individuals, communities and countries around the world. But the migration-SDG connections reach far beyond just implementing migration policies, and entail integrating migration across governance sectors.
Effective migration governance is a key success factor for the achievement of the SDGs. Many SDG targets can only be achieved if migration and migrants are considered. This guide equips states and development actors with relevant guidance and tools to better understand the migration-SDG connections and to take practical action to integrate migration into SDG implementation.
The publication was commissioned by IOM with support received from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
