Bangladesh Champion country for GCM implementation

Bangladesh is one of the 18 countries primarily identified as a ‘Champion’ country for Global Compact of Migration (GCM) implementation.

The identification was based on a number of criteria including the adoption of GCM; focus on a broad spread of migration issues to respect the 360-degree nature of GCM; and development of the UN migration coordination mechanism.

The information was revealed at a sensitization workshop on Global Compact for Safe Orderly and Regular Migration, held recently, arranged by International Organization for Migration (IOM).

In July 2020, the government of Bangladesh formally confirmed its role as a ‘Champion’ country.

Bangladesh is one of the first countries to have agreed to take up this role and lead GCM implementation, follow up and review process in line with national priorities.
