The global compact for migration is the first, intergovernmentally negotiated agreement, prepared under the auspices of the United Nations, to cover all dimensions of international migration in a holistic and comprehensive manner.
As stated in the UN Secretary-General Report on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), “the instrumental role of local actors in implementing the Compact, as first responders during crises and more generally, has become increasingly apparent.” Since the adoption of the GCM
The Mechanism creates opportunities for cities to influence the GFMD discussions and provides them with opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and exchange. It establishes a platform to interact with States, civil society and the private sector, and provides avenues to bolster innovative solutions.
European cities, national governments, the European Commission and civil society organizations are working together under the Urban Agenda Partnership on Inclusion to develop ideas and concrete actions to support the integration of refugees and other migrants in Europe and their cities.
Recognizing there is no one-size-fits all approach to implementation of the Global Compact, this flexible, self-guided reference document provides a methodology and resources to support member states and stakeholders with GCM implementation, whether through the development of a dedicated national...
Created in 2016 by IOM, the Migration Governance Indicators (MGI) programme is a tool that supports governments in taking stock of the comprehensiveness of their migration policies, as well as in identifying gaps and areas that could be strengthened.

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).
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.
