GCM National Implementation Plans

Core Working Group (CWG) 2.2 is tasked with developing guidance and tools to support Member States’ efforts to implement the GCM, including through the elaboration of national implementations plans and to conduct follow-up and review of the GCM. CWG 2.2 benefits from the active engagement of diverse membership, which include 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, OHCHR, and UNDP, the working group is committed to upholding the principles of the UN Network on Migration to carry out the activities outlined in its workplan.

The main output under CWG 2.2 is GCM implementation guidance for Member States and all relevant stakeholders. In accordance with the 360-degree vision of the GCM, this guidance has been designed as a flexible, self-guided reference document that recognizes that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to GCM implementation. The GCM implementation guidance is delivered through two, complementary parts: a Guide and a Booklet, which can be found using the link below.

The GCM implementation guidance benefited from feedback and input from GCM Champions and other stakeholders, including through a technical discussion with GCM Champions convened in February 2021. Thank you to all partners who reviewed and provided feedback on the draft material.
