Also available in:

To foster cooperation and mutual exchange between the regional consultative processes on migration (RCPs), IOM has been organizing since 2005 Global Meetings of RCP Chairs and Secretariats (Global RCP Meeting).  The report summarizes the discussions and key outcomes of the Sixth Global RCP Meeting of 13 October 2016, which was held under the theme “Migration and the Sustainable Development Goals: the Role of Inter-state Consultation Mechanisms on Migration and of Regional Economic Organizations.”  The report illustrates the current involvement by RCPs in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and highlights the need for partnerships with regional actors, such as regional economic organizations and UN Regional Commissions in this respect.
