The meeting also offered an opportunity for UNHCR to provide an update on the implementation of the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR). The IOM Director General, in his capacity of Coordinator of the UN Network on Migration (UNNM), presented the role played by the IBC as Regional Network on Migration. The importance of an UN system-wide collaborative engagement at all levels in the implementation, follow-up, and review of the Global Compact for Migration (GCM) was highlighted, in line with the objectives and principles of the GCM, framed within the 2030 Agenda. IOM expressed its appreciation of the support provided by RCs, including in the form of the co-chairing of nine national networks on migration in the region. The vulnerabilities of migrants must be addressed, and migration must be leveraged, for sustainable recovery from COVID-19. An update on the status of the GCM Regional Review in the UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region was also provided.
