The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognises that human mobility is intrinsically linked to inequality, the first time this link has been made in the global development framework. The Agenda’s universal commitment to ensure safe, orderly and regular migration, respect for human rights and the humane treatment of migrants, refugees and internally displaced persons, is reflected in target 10.7 of the 2030 Agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This target is crucial to achieving all of the SDGs.
In this session, global leaders will debate the complex relationship between mobility and inequalities. When given the opportunity to thrive, migrants, refugees and IDPs can make a decisive contribution to enable human mobility to be a powerful force to “leave no one behind”.
