Fifteenth Coordination Meeting on International Migration

New York
16 - 17 February, 2017

International migration is a global phenomenon that is growing in scope, complexity and impact. Today, virtually all countries in the world are simultaneously countries of destination, origin and transit for international migrants. Traditional migration patterns are complemented by new migratory flows, fuelled by changing economic, demographic, political and social realities. Changing migration patterns affect the size and composition of migrant populations as well as host and origin economies and societies. The rise in global mobility, the growing complexity of migratory patterns and the impact of population movements have contributed to international migration becoming a priority for the international community.

The 15th Coordination Meeting on International Migration will take stock of progress made in implementing the migration-related commitments of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (A/RES/70/1). The meeting wil also contribute to the implementation of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants (A/RES/71/1) by reviewing the substantive preparations for the 2018 intergovernmental conference on international migration, with a particular focus on the global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration (A/RES/71/1, Annex II).
