The new strategy aims at effectively addressing growing challenges that migrants face. Guided by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, and Agenda 2063 of the African Union Commission, the strategy prioritises three key pillars – resilience, mobility, and governance – for 2020 to 2024, in line with the implementation of IOM’s 2019-2023 Strategic Vision. The Strategy also reflects how the organisation will navigate years to effectively address the growing complex challenges and uncertainties in the fields of migration, mobility, and humanitarian aid and to seize the opportunities that migration can offer to both migrants and society.
