LOCAL INCLUSION OF MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES: A GATEWAY TO EXISTING IDEAS, RESOURCES AND CAPACITIES FOR CITIES ACROSS THE WORLD
The Guidance for Local inclusion of Migrants and Refugees is a multi-dimensional support to local authorities for mainstreaming migrant and refugee integration across their day-to-day work and progress towards SDGs objectives as inclusive and flourishing cities. This report is the result of a multi-stakeholder collaboration between several international organisations and cities coalitions, and provides practical advice on how to improve cities policies for integration while ensuring social cohesion.
Partners: CMI, OECD, UNCTAD, UNICEF, UNESCO, UN-Habitat, WHO as well as city and Mayor associations UCLG, MMC and IOM
The report will be launched during the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) on 25 January 2021.

The integration of migrants is one of the most formidable tasks policy makers in OECD countries face. The sheer scale of migration necessitates a concerted effort to make integration a success. If integrated successfully, migrants can contribute to host countries in multiple ways, not least of all, economically. At the same time, integrating migrants and refugees can be challenging, especially because they constitute highly diverse groups, consisting of different genders, ages, cultural backgrounds with different motivations, skill sets, educational levels and experience.
This data visualisation tool allows you to compare regions on a number of issues relating to migrant integration, including reception numbers, length of stay, education level, skills and employment statistics.
