IMRF Progress Declaration
To ensure the widest possible engagement of Member States and stakeholders in the preparatory process of the International Migration Review Forum (IMRF), the United Nations Network on Migration, on behalf of the co-facilitators of the intergovernmental consultations on the Progress Declaration, opened this dedicated discussion space on the Migration Network Hub.
To recall, the General Assembly, in its resolution A/RES/73/326, called for the Progress Declaration to be brief, concise, evidence-based and action-oriented.
The Progress Declaration may contain:
- An evaluation of the overall progress made with respect to the implementation of the 23 objectives of the Global Compact at all levels;
- An identification of the key challenges, opportunities and emerging issues related to the implementation of the Global Compact, and the scope for further international cooperation on international migration;
- Recommendations on the implementation of the Global Compact, as appropriate;
Building on this guidance, the co-facilitators welcome comments and suggestions with regards to the Progress Declaration.
Comments are requested to be concise and focused on the GCM and purpose of the IMRF. Multiple submissions are accepted.
