Migration-related Indicators: Tracking progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals and the Seventh National Five-Year Plan

Also available in:

IOM, in close coordination with the Government of Bangladesh, supported the development of migration-related indicators to track progress towards migration-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Seventh Five-Year Plan (SFYP). The initiative has been undertaken through the project, “Bangladesh Sustainable Reintegration and Improved Migration Governance (Prottasha)”, implemented by IOM and funded by the European Union. Based on consultations with key government agencies, international agencies, development partners and think tanks, as well as a review of national documents on the SDGs and the SFYP, a list of national indicators have been developed to improve national monitoring and performance in the migration sector, aligning the indicators already in the SFYP with the corresponding SDG indicators.
