The role of cities in implementing the migration-related targets of the SDGs

Innovative tools and practices for cities to measure and enhance the implementation of SDG 11 and SDG 10 Target 7 at the local level

Thursday, June 8, 2017 - 15:15 to 16:30
In a global context of increasing human mobility, urbanisation and decentralisation, cities increasingly find themselves at the forefront of managing the positive and negative impacts of migration and displacement. The partner organisations propose to share their innovative tools and approaches to enhance cities’ resilience in the face of the challenges that migration and displacement bring. Such approaches include efforts to foster effective partnerships with civil society and other local actors, empower vulnerable women and youth, and enhance employability and migrants’ investment for local development.
