Mainstreaming Migration Into Urban Planning: A Key Success Factor for Leaving No One Behind

The event will build on IOM, UN Habitat and UCLG’s critical role in empowering cities as key actors in migration governance for sustainable urban development within the context of the ongoing discussions for the adoption of the Global Compact on Migration. The event will present local leaders’ recommendations outlined in the declaration of the Mechelen Conference on Cities and Migration. Moreover, it will be a space to showcase good practices and innovative training tools developed for ensuring policy coherence in migration governance for the achievement of the New Urban Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.

The event will be organised around strategic guiding questions to extract good and innovative practices as well as key success factors and lessons learnt from the discussions.
