Issue Brief: Development Approaches to Migration and Displacement
UNDP supports integrated development programmes that harness the positive potential of migration for development, address the drivers and root causes of forced displacement, and respond to protracted displacement, sudden crisis and the return and reintegration of formerly displaced persons. UNDP’s broad areas of work are:
- Developing comprehensive national policy and institutional frameworks for migration;
- Managing migration for long-term positive development impacts at the sub-national and local level;
- Resilience-based development solutions for migration and displacement in times of crisis to cope with and recover from the impact of large movements and to protect development gains.
