TOPIC Migration

International migration has increased dramatically in the recent decades. Economic disparities, demographic shifts, civil wars and natural disasters have fuelled the movement of people across borders in search of improved living conditions and better opportunities for themselves and their families. Today, there are an estimated 214 million migrants living outside their country of birth—a number that has more than doubled in the past 35 years. With the number of international migrants increasing rapidly, and the causes of migration showing no signs of diminishing, the issue has taken centre stage on the international development agenda. In this dialogue, UNICEF and the Special Unit for South-South Cooperation (SU/SSC) have been committed to highlighting the impacts of migration and remittances on the rights of migrants and families left behind in countries of origin.

South-South in Action is a quarterly newsletter to showcase South-South and triangular cooperation carried out on the ground by South-South Cooperation focal points of Governments and United Nations organizations.
