Migration and the United Nations Post-2015 Development Agenda

As the target date for the MDG nears in 2015, the international community is faced with both the challenge and the opportunity of formulating the next global development agenda. Although migration was not factored into the MDGs, it plays an integral role in the most crucial development questions facing the world today, including: how to generate inclusive growth and create employment for a growing world population; how to manage new global risks, such as vulnerability to shocks and disasters, and adaptation to climate change; and how to mobilize financing for development in a world of decreasing aid budgets. This publication gathers together recent research findings outlining the links between migration and development and proposing how migration can best be factored into the future development framework, offering a timely contribution to the argument for migration's inclusion in the coming development agenda.

In October 2013, the second United Nations High-level Dialogue on International Migration and Development will be held in New York, presenting the international community with a valuable opportunity to focus its attention on how to make migration work for poverty reduction and sustainable development. The second High-level Dialogue will take place at an important time, as the international community considers moving beyond the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and towards the formulation of the United Nations post-2015 development agenda.
