Communications Strategy- Regional UN Network on Migration for Arab States

The Regional United Nations (UN) Network on Migration for the Arab States (the Network) seeks to provide system-wide support to Member States and all partners in the implementation, follow-up and review of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM) in the region. This Communication Strategy benefits from the outcomes of the Network’s Executive Committee Principals’ Meeting and the Annual Meeting of December 2020, the National stakeholder consultations in 2020 and 2021, as well as the Network’s Global Communications Strategy 2021-2023. It is furthermore based on the ongoing efforts by the UN system in the region and partners and looks ahead to the first International Migration Review Forum (IMRF) in early 2022. In carrying out its mandate, the Network will prioritize the rights and wellbeing of migrants and their communities of destination, origin, and transit. It will place emphasis on those issues where a common UN system approach would add value and from which results and impact can be readily gauged. As the Network undertakes these priorities for 2021-2023, it will continue to remain adaptable to changing priorities and needs of both the Member State and migrant population it hosts. The 2021-2023 Network’s first regional communications strategy sets out how the Network seeks to shift an  ad hoc approach to communications towards one that is more impactful, evidence-based, and policy-oriented.
