The global initiatives such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Compact for Migration (GCM) have set specific, achievable and measurable targets to ensure safe, orderly and ethical migration. The role of civil society organizations (CSOs) in these global commitments are well recognized and formalized.
Given the diverse and independent nature of CSOs and the complex nature of these consultative processes, tracking of these commitments by CSOs require more technical, systematic and collaborative engagement.
CGCM was established to address this gap of tracking global commitments on migration and development. The aim of CGCM is to increase CSO monitoring of the global, regional and intra-regional cooperation and commitments on migration and development through—
- Tracking, monitoring and reporting on the implementation of the global commitments
- Capacity building of CSOs in understanding of and contributing to these tracking processes
- Research and analysis of priorities and progress of global commitments
- Engagement with government and non-government partners and in national, regional, and global forums.
