The Asia-Pacific Migration Report 2015: Migrants' Contributions to Development provides evidence on how to achieve this target. The Report assesses the development impacts of migrants in the countries of the Asia-Pacific region and provides guidance on the steps countries, regional organizations, civil society actors and others can take to improve these impacts, notably through securing the rights of migrants and ensuring their access to social protection and decent work, both through national policies and multilateral dialogue and cooperation. It builds on subregional reports published on migration in East Asia and South-East Asia in 2008 and South and South-West Asia in 2012. However, the Asia-Pacific Migration Report 2015 is unique in that it is the first report of its kind to address international migration in the region as a whole, from Turkey and the Russian Federation in the west to Kiribati, Samoa and Tonga in the east.
