Facilitating Safe and Regular Migration Pathways in a Changing Climate: Lessons from GCM Implementation - IMRF Side Event
Production Date
Video Length
The side event seeks to: highlight progress and gaps in current implementation of GCM commitments related to migration governance in disaster and climate change contexts;  showcase effective practices and available policy instruments related to pathways for regular migration in disaster and climate change contexts at regional, national and local levels; and 2 sensitize governments and raise awareness of challenges and opportunities to improve future voluntary monitoring and review efforts under the GCM.

This event will share existing national, regional and local migration policy perspectives, instruments and practices to address these challenges from a migration governance perspective, recognizing that safe, regular and orderly migration, if well managed, can also offer opportunities for migrants' inclusion, their host communities and societies. Both the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants and the GCM include a commitment to enhance the availability and flexibility of pathways for regular migration in disaster and climate change contexts. To build on progress to date and identify priority action for the future, a diverse range of high-level speakers will debate the commitments and principles set out in particular in Objective 5 of the GCM and will present and discuss key findings from the GCM baseline mapping project implemented under Thematic Priority 4 of the UN Network on Migration, and share reflections from international, regional, national and local perspectives.
