The Global Meeting on Migration and Development, brought together key stakeholders from governments, civil society, international organisations and research working in the area of international cooperation as well as migration and development (M&D) in various regional and national contexts. At the centre of the discussions was the Agenda 2030 and implications for its implementation from a migration and development perspective, considering a number of sustainable development goals. The overall goal was to exchange on practices and perspectives, establish common ground, and strengthen a global network engaged for a pragmatic and result-oriented implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The workshop was articulated along the four main thematic clusters including a) the current status of the Agenda 2030, b) forced displacement and development in the context of the Agenda 2030 and its implementation, c) migration as a transversal topic within SDG goal 5 on Gender, goal 3 on Health and goal 8 on Decent Work, and d) the implementation and contextualisation of the Agenda 2030 at national level and implications for the different stakeholders.
