By September 2015, the Member States of the United Nations will have negotiated a set of sustainable development goals (SDGs) and subsidiary targets and indicators. Though migration was not included as a Millennium Development Goal, the impact of migration on development through employment, migrant remittances, and skill circulation has been widely recognized. There is a growing debate for the integration of appropriate migration-related targets and indicators in the post-2015 development agenda. Integrating Migration into the Post-2015 United Nations Development Agenda, the tenth Issue in Brief in a joint-MPI-IOM publication series offering insight on migration issues affecting the Asia-Pacific region, looks at the role of migration as a driver for development and explores how to integrate migration-related targets and indicators into the post-2015 development agenda.
