These include the demographic shift, urbanization, digitalization, widening inequalities, mistrust and exclusion from decision making, climate change, conflicts, the challenges within the multilateral system, changes in the funding ecosystem. to the IDM will also serve to generate more impetus, building on the progress since 2015, and the landmark IMRF Progress Declaration, to maximize the positive impact of human mobility by discussing and refining practical actions towards the acceleration of the SDGs.
