M&D Policy Tools

GFMD discussions, since 2007, have yielded policy recommendations and outcomes, which have been implemented by participating governments, international agencies and experts. These concrete GFMD outcomes serve as policy tools that governments can use to help them adjust their policies, laws and institutional set-ups to link migration and development more effectively.
