Position Paper: Development Approaches to Migration and Displacement
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development fully recognizes migration and displacement as core development considerations. It has introduced a range of specific SDG targets on migration and pledges to “leave no one behind”, including refugees, displaced persons and host communities.
Since migration and displacement are key priorities for UNDP’s sustainable development agenda, this paper outlines UNDP’s position on key commitments made in the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. It further outlines recommendations for the forthcoming Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework and the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, and it presents UNDP’s Summit and post-Summit corporate commitments on migration and displacement.
