Sustainable development

Cross-cutting theme in the Global Compact for Migration 

The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) is based on a set of cross-cutting and interdependent guiding principles. This page provides resources for the guiding principle of Sustainable Development

“The Global Compact is rooted in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and builds upon its recognition that migration is a multidimensional reality of major relevance for the sustainable development of countries of origin, transit and destination, which requires coherent and comprehensive responses. Migration contributes to positive development outcomes and to realizing the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, especially when it is properly managed. The Global Compact aims to leverage the potential of migration for the achievement of all Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the impact this achievement will have on migration in the future” (GCM, 2018: para. 15) 

Migration is a cross-cutting issue, relevant to all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Out of the 17 Goals, 10 contain targets and indicators that align with migration or mobility. The GCM recognizes that when properly managed, migration contributes to positive development outcomes. The GCM’s 23 objectives, commitments and subsequent actions therefore provide a robust framework to support governments and other actors to achieve the migration dimensions of the SDGs. The adoption of the GCM and the creation of the UN Network on Migration presents a significant opportunity to leverage the positive relationship between migration and development to achieve the 2030 Agenda. This in turn will ensure that migration is an integral aspect of all development efforts. 

 

Sustainable Development in the text of the Global Compact 

The guiding principle of Sustainable Development is also mentioned in the following sections of the GCM: 

  • Preamble, para. 2 and 6 
  • Vision and Guiding Principles, para. 8, 10, 12 and 15
  • Objective 1, para. 17(d): Collect and utilize accurate and disaggregated data as a basis for evidence -based policies
  • Objective 2, para. 18(a)(b)(d): Minimize the adverse drivers and structural factors that compel people to leave their country of origin
  • Objective 19, para. 35c): Create conditions for migrants and diasporas to fully contribute to sustainable development in all countries
  • Objective 20, para. 36(a): Promote faster, safer and cheaper transfer of remittances and foster financial inclusion of migrants
  • Objective 21, para. 37(h): Cooperate in facilitating safe and dignified return and readmission, as well as sustainable reintegration
  • Objective 23, para. 39(b): Strengthen international cooperation and global partnerships for safe, orderly and regular migration
  • Implementation, para. 42 
  • Follow-up and Review, para. 49  

The Global Compact for Migration (GCM) report is available in AR, ZH, EN, FR, RU, ES.

    About the Migration Network Hub

    What is the Migration Network Hub?

    The Hub is a virtual “meeting space” where governments, stakeholders and experts can access and share migration-related information and services. It provides curated content, analysis and information on a variety of topics.

    The Hub aims to support UN Member States in the implementation, follow-up and review of the Global Compact for Migration by serving as a repository of existing evidence, practices and initiatives, and facilitating access to knowledge sharing via online discussions, an expert database and demand-driven, tailor-made solutions (launching in 2021).

    What content is displayed in the Hub?

    The Hub aims to help you find information on migration, ranging from policy briefs and journal articles, existing portals and platforms and what they offer, to infographics and videos. The different types of resources submitted by users undergo peer review by a panel of experts from within the UN and beyond, before being approved for inclusion in the Hub. To provide guidance to users based on findings of the needs assessment, the content is ordered so that more comprehensive and global resources are shown before more specific and regional ones. Know a great resource? Please submit using the links above and your suggestion will be reviewed. Please see the draft criteria for existing practices here.

    Apply to join the Peer Review Roster

    Content submitted to the Migration Network Hub is first peer reviewed by experts in the field from both the UN and beyond. Applications are welcomed to join the roster on an ongoing basis. Learn more here.
