Strengthening the UN system to implement the GCM

Core Working Group (CWG) 2.1 is charged with developing guidance and tools to support the UN system with GCM implementation. CWG 2.1 benefits from the active engagement of diverse membership, which includes participants representing the UN system, national human rights institutions, civil society organisations, local and regional authorities, private sector, academia, and migrant organisations. Under co-leadership of IOM and UNDP, the working group is committed to upholding the principles of the UN Network on Migration (Network) to carry out the activities outlined in its workplan.

A key deliverable of CWG 2.1 is a training for UN County Teams (UNCTs) on how to integrate migration into Common Country Analyses (CCAs) and Cooperation Frameworks (CFs). This training was developed through CWG 2.1 and piloted with six UN Country Teams between June and November 2021. Thank you to all UN Country Teams, Resident Coordinator Offices, and Network partners who participated in and supported the pilot trainings.

The Facilitator's Guide, which contains all training materials, builds on lessons learned from the piloting experience. Please find the comprehensive training material linked below. For more information, please contact the UN Network on Migration's Global Facilitation Team (
