Interrelations between Public Policies, Migration and Development is the result of a project carried out by the European Union and the OECD Development Centre in ten partner countries: Armenia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Côte d’Ivoire, the Dominican Republic, Georgia, Haiti, Morocco and the Philippines. The project aimed to provide policy makers with evidence on the way migration influences specific sectors – labour market, agriculture, education, investment and financial services, and social protection and health – and, in turn, how sectoral policies affect migration. The report addresses four dimensions of the migration cycle: emigration, remittances, return and immigration.
The results of the empirical work confirm that migration contributes to the development of countries of origin and destination. However, the potential of migration is not yet fully exploited by the ten partner countries. One explanation is that policy makers do not sufficiently take migration into account in their respective policy areas. To enhance the contribution of migration to development, home and host countries therefore need to adopt a more coherent policy agenda to better integrate migration into development strategies, improve co-ordination mechanisms and strengthen international co-operation.
Le Centre de développement de l'OCDE lancera son rapport sur les Interactions entre les politiques publiques, les migrations et le développement (IPPMD), en marge de la 15ème réunion de coordination sur les migrations internationales au siège des Nations Unies à New York, le vendredi 17 février.

This newsletter informs about recent activities and publications that are relevant from a policy coherence for sustainable development (PCSD) perspective.
The OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) conducts periodic reviews of the individual development co-operation efforts of DAC members. The policies and programmes of each member are critically examined approximately once every five years.
This review assesses the performance of Poland, not just that of its development co-operation agency, and examines both policy and implementation. It takes an integrated, system-wide perspective on the development co-operation and humanitarian assistance activities of Poland.
La Pologne a acquis une présence certes restreinte mais solide dans la sphère du développement international, et il faudrait maintenant qu’elle dirige les ressources limitées dont elle dispose vers les domaines où elle peut produire l’impact le plus grand, en affectant davantage de fonds à l’aide bilatérale destinée aux pays et secteurs prioritaires, selon un nouvel examen de l’OCDE.
