Migration and development are interdependent processes, driving change and stimulating new connections between individuals and societies in fields of economics, trade, technology, culture and religion. Human mobility is a means to diversify and strengthen livelihoods, as well as an avenue to escape persecution, conflict and disaster in times of adversity. With more than a billion people on the move in the world – internally and internationally – there is a need to ensure the protection of all migrants so that the full social and economic potential of migration can be realised in both countries of origin and destination.
