FAO at the International Migration Review Forum (IMRF)
Hybrid Event, 17/05/2022 - 20/05/2022
Convened by the 76th President of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), the International Migration Review Forum (IMRF) will take place from 17 to 20 May, serving as the primary intergovernmental global platform for Member States to assess and deliberate on implementation of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), including in its contribution to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The IMRF programme is available online and will include four interactive multi-stakeholder round tables, a policy debate, and a plenary session. The IMRF will also adopt an intergovernmentally agreed Progress Declaration. FAO will actively engage in the IMRF, contributing to the formal programme and through participation in side-events.
