Author : United Nations (UN) | 2016
Published By: UNESCO
In 2015 and 2016, two global agendas were adopted under the auspices of the United Nations: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the New Urban Agenda. Both are internationally negotiated sets of commitments and priorities which, while not formally binding, can be considered directive for governments and non-governmental actors worldwide. These agendas have considerable political impetus as well as institutional engagement across the international system for their implementation. Both agendas call explicitly for attention to migrants and migration.
