Overcoming barriers: Human mobility and development is the new, definitive report on migration and development. It breaks new ground in applying a human development approach to the study of movement, covering both internal and international migration. It discusses who moves, where and why. It looks at the multiple impacts of migration for all who are affected by it —not just those who move, but also those who stay, and links these to policies. The report lays out a major policy agenda designed to promote the human development outcomes of migration, and is a must read for everyone interested in the topic .
Since October 5, the report has been launched in over 60 countries, and has generated extensive media coverage including over 1000 articles and interest via the web (including more than 770,000 visits and more than 150,000 downloads).
The presentation will highlight the key findings and recommendations of the report, its reception, and briefly present the results of a recent review of UNDP migration-related activities and projects. This will be followed by an open discussion.
