UNGA high-level side event: migration and the 2030 Agenda will take place in New York on 21 September 2017.

Migration is one of the defining features of the 21st century and can contribute to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. For this to happen, we need a better understanding of how migration will impact the achievement of key Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the roles of international and national actors in this process. The Global Compact on Migration provides a unique opportunity to advance this agenda, and better explore the relationship between migration and development.
This official United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) high-level side event is co-hosted by ODI and the Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations. It discusses why migration is so pivotal for sustainable development, and details how national governments can take these issues into account.
