Strengthening the Migration-Development Nexus through Improved Policy and Institutional Coherence
Migration has become a defining issue for development. There are over 200 million international migrants and many more internal migrants in the world. In the coming decades, demographic imbalances, persistent income disparities, declining communication and transportation costs, and increased access to information will continue to drive migration worldwide. South-South migration will probably grow even more, and in some parts of the world climate change will have the potential to displace large sections of the population.
