Second World Bank-EU Presidency Conference on Migration and the Global Development Agenda
The Move4Dev conference follows several high-profile initiatives in response to global refugee and migrant crises, which culminated in the adoption of the New York Declaration at the UN General Assembly in September. It follows up on the established framework for EC-WBG Collaboration in Situations Affected by Fragility, Conflict and Violence. Last but not least, it builds on strategic priorities which EU leaders set out in the migration agenda which Slovakia’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union seeks to leverage. It also embraces the EIB’s new initiatives outside the EU.
The event aims to foster multilateralism by seeking joint commitment on the part of leading stakeholders to deliver the commitments adopted in the New York Declaration defined at the UN GA in September. Bringing together the United Nations, the World Bank Group, the European Investment Bank and the European Commission alongside the private sector, civil society and academia, Move4Dev will seek to identify synergies in order to operationalize the two Global Compacts on migrants and refugees.
