Local and regional governments are at the heart of migration and displacement governance. It is at the local level where we see pragmatic, principled and people-centered approaches that spearhead and exceed the commitments of global frameworks such as the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, the Global Compact on Refugees, as well the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.
The Call to Local Action for Migrants and Refugees aims to capture this political commitment and vast practical experience, with the aim to:
Expand the number of Local and Regional Governments publicly endorsing the Compacts through the Marrakech Mayors Declaration.
Collect and showcase bold, people-centered local actions that achieve or exceed the GCM and GCR to facilitate cross-fertilization, peer learning and replication.
Create a cohort of publicly recognized LRG leaders engaged in robust GCM and GCR implementation to motivate scaling, investment and new local-national-global partnerships.
