The UN has released a new study that finds a causal relation between long lasting droughts in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras and the increase in irregular migration from these countries to the United States. This research shows that younger and more vulnerable people are more prone to leave food-insecure areas – especially in the Dry Corridor, a drought-prone area that crosses these countries. Indeed, guaranteeing enough food supplies for themselves is one of the aims of most families.  This is why 72% of those families that receive money from migrants abroad applied “emergency” coping...

      The International Organisation of Migration has published a new report outlining the remarkable potential of migration for development. While migration was absent from the Millennium Development Goals (MDG), the Sustainable Development Goal’s (SDGs) political declaration breaks new ground by recognising the “positive contribution of migrants for inclusive growth” and the “multi-dimensional reality” of migration. Thus, this report highlights how migration can be inserted in several goals and targets of the SDGs, and considers how cities can contribute to the achievement of these goals....

  Ces notes politiques ont été rédigées dans le cadre du Quatrième Forum Mondial des Maires sur la mobilité humaine, les migrations et le développement. Ils soulignent l'importance des villes en tant que producteurs de politiques efficaces dans le domaine de l'inclusion des migrants. En effet, les autorités locales sont à l'avant-garde de l'accueil des réfugiés et des migrants. Alors que la migration aujourd'hui est nettement urbaine, les maires et les autorités locales, en tant que niveau de gouvernement le plus proche des personnes, ont le potentiel et la responsabilité de créer un...

These policy briefs were written in the framework of the Fourth Mayoral Forum on Human Mobility, Migration and Development.They highlight the importance of cities as innovative and effective policy-makers in the field of migrant inclusion. Indeed, local authorities are at the front lines of refugee and migrant reception and inclusion. While migration today is markedly urban, mayors and local authorities, as the level of government closest to the people, have the potential and the responsibility to create an enabling environment for inclusion, facilitating access to rights for both women and...
