Part A of this report provides a systematic update of the evidence base regarding migration’s relevance to and impact on the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In doing so, it considers the role of migration as an enabler of development through a number of different channels – monetary and social remittances, the act of migrating and the impacts on those left behind. Part B takes the debate a step further by first presenting argumentation for why migration is important and why mobility should be a component of the post-2015 development agenda.

Review of the evidence

This section focuses on the evidence base regarding migration’s relevance to and impact on the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This section represents a systematic update of The Millennium Development Goals and Migration, a report published by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in 2005. Since its publication, there has been a plethora of research looking at different migration and development issues, including, not least, the numerous background documents prepared for UNDP’s Human Development Report 2009: Overcoming Barriers: Human Mobility and Development. In looking at each MDG in turn, this section of the report considers the theoretical and, where the evidence is available, the empirical relationship between migration and development.
