16th annual Coordination Meeting on International Migration
15 - 16 February, 2018
The Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs is organizing the sixteenth annual Coordination Meeting on International Migration at the United Nations in New York from 15 to 16 February 2018.
The purpose of the meeting is to contribute to the preparation of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration by (a) taking stock of migration-related data and research, (b) highlighting gaps in the current evidence base, and (c) assessing priorities for data, research and training to support the implementation of the global compact. The meeting will review progress in monitoring the migration-related targets of the Sustainable Development Goals and allow participants to present and coordinate their recent activities and initiatives on migration.
By bringing together representatives of Member States, entities of the United Nations system, civil society, academia and the private sector, the coordination meeting provides a unique opportunity to strengthen the evidence base on migration and to promote collaboration and coordination on migration-related activities. The outcomes of the meeting will inform the intergovernmental negotiations on the migration compact (A/71/280) and contribute to the report of the Secretary-General on international migration and development for the seventy-third session of the General Assembly (A/71/237).
