Phase 2: Stocktaking

As decided by the New York Declaration, the process leading up to the global compact for migration was split into three phases. Consultation, Stocktaking, Negotiations

Phase II: December 2017—January 2018: Stocktaking
The stocktaking phase began with a meeting in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on 4 – 6 December 2017. The aim of the meeting was to pull together and analyze all relevant input received during the consultations phase. The outcomes of the stocktaking fed into a first draft (“zero draft”) of a global compact for migration prepared by the co-facilitators of the process (Switzerland and Mexico), which provides the basis for the third phase: intergovernmental negotiations.
