Progress towards achieving the Fifth APPC Plan of Action Goals on International Migration

The purpose of the present paper is to assess progress towards achieving the recommendations concerning international migration in the Plan of Action on Population and Poverty adopted by the Fifth Asian and Pacific Population Conference (Fifth APPC). In that context, it is valuable to review other international commitments and policy processes affecting international migration because they also influence the decisions and actions taken by Governments in Asia and the Pacific.
