Workshop on the nexus Demography-International Migration-Sustainable Development
Plan Bleu, Regional Activity Centre of the United Nations Environment Programme/Mediterranean Action Plan, has been mandated by the parties of the Barcelona Convention to carry out a new foresight programme on the future of the environment and development of the Mediterranean, called MED 2050. Through a participative process, the programme aims at identifying possible visions and scenarios of the future of the Mediterranean by 2050 and at building solid and realistic transition pathways towards a sustainable future. Scientists, decision-makers and stakeholders will be involved in the implementation of this program and a number of activities are planned as part of this programme to facilitate the exchanges of views regarding the future of the Mediterranean region. The programme includes a focus project on the Demography-International Migration-Sustainable Development nexus.
Demography-International Migration-Sustainable Development nexus.
While the relationship between demography, migration and sustainable development remains characterized by complex political, social, environmental and economic processes, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognizes that migration is a powerful driver of sustainable development, for migrants and their communities. This is why MED 2050, in parallel with its work on the general foresight of the Mediterranean basin, wished to feed the debate on this challenge for the future of the Mediterranean basin and to convene a specific regional workshop to facilitate exchanges on the subject. This workshop will take place on 15-16 December 2021 via videoconference and is organized in cooperation with the Department of Political Science of the University of Bari, Italy.
The objective of this workshop is to share insight and knowledge about international migratory flows in the Mediterranean basin and their economic, social, political and/or environmental drivers and impacts in the framework of sustainable development.
