UNDP's aim is to maximize the developmental benefits of migration for poor countries and people, and to mitigate any negative consequences. UNDP country offices provide capacity development support to governments that wish to develop pro-poor, pro- development and human rights-based migration strategies, as part of their broader (MDG-based) national development strategies. In follow-up to the 2009 Human Development Report on human mobility and development, particular attention is given to strengthening inter-agency cooperation at global and country levels to support governments and UN country teams in efforts to mainstream migration in national development planning processes. Within the international debate on migration, UNDP advocates for a focus on sustainable human development and protecting the rights of migrants, as well as on reducing barriers to mobility including through progress on the GATS Mode 4 negotiations on the temporary movement of labour.
