UN population forum urged to examine ways to protect people on move

10.04.2018 14:31 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of yesterday, the 51st Session of the UN Commission on Population and Development, opened, UN Radio reports. It is to be admitted, the Session is the main UN forum on population. As to the report, now a great migration of humanity into cities is under way, and with millions drawn to urban areas for the promise of a better life, the Session is to protect people on the move and help create cities that can embrace the massive number of new arrivals. «People are moving at high rates within national borders, and international migration is growing more complex, with more countries serving simultaneously as countries of origin, transit and destination,» said Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed at the opening of the 51st Session Within this week, delegates will tackle a host of matters related to the dramatic population shifts under way driven by the movement of people from rural to urban areas, between cities of different sizes and from one country to another. By 2030, six of every 10 people will be an urban inhabitant. By 2050, it may be two out of three. Some cities have successfully managed migration, said Ms. Mohammed Thus, since 2013, São Paulo has been successful in this endeavor through an awareness-raising campaign focused on ending xenophobia and better policy coordination. These measures have helped the Brazilian city embrace migrants and their families and provide them with assistance. Besides, within London, the Home Secretary and the Archbishop of Canterbury have launched a new scheme to encourage community groups to sponsor a refugee family. An online service for refugees in the UK now makes it easier for any individual to support refugees, allowing local authorities to focus on the provision of public goods and services. Data collection is crucial to improve collective understanding of the changing situation, she admitted. «Because gaps in understanding are easily filled by myths and misperceptions, better data can usefully inform global discussions of migration and related issues,» Ms. Mohammed said. «It is for this reason that the Commission on Population and Development, with its focus on population data and its emphasis on evidence-based policy-making, plays such a vital role,» she added.
