Media Advisory: Launch of the
Interrelations between Public Policies, Migration and Development report

17 February 2017 at 13:00 P.M New York City time


The OECD Development Centre launched its report on Interrelations between Public Policies, Migration and Development (IPPMD), on the sidelines of the 15th Coordination Meeting on International Migration at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, on Friday 17 February.

The report is a step forward in understanding how policy coherence for sustainable development can be achieved. It empirically examines how different migration dimensions affect key policy sectors: the labour market, agriculture, education, investment and financial services, and social protection and health. Conversely, it analyses how sectoral policies influence different migration outcomes, such as the decision to migrate or return, the use of remittances and the integration of immigrants.

IPPMD features fieldwork undertaken in ten countries - Armenia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Côte d’Ivoire, the Dominican Republic, Georgia, Haiti, Morocco and the Philippines - based on four ears of close co-operation with governmental focal points and local research partners in each country.

Speakers taking part in the event entitled “Making the most of migration in developing countries: What role for public policies?” include:

  • Joanne Adamson, Deputy Head of EU Delegation to the UN
  • David Khoudour, Head, Migration and Skills Unit, OECD Development Centre
  • Riad Meddeb, Policy Advisor, Bureau of Policy and Programme Support, UNDP
  • El Habib Nadir, Secretary-General, Ministry in charge of Moroccans Abroad and Migration Affairs
  • Mario Pezzini, Director, OECD Development Centre and Special Advisor to the OECD Secretary General on Development
