Since 2019, ESCWA, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the League of Arab States have been organizing a series of regional workshops on Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs). The workshops provide a platform for knowledge exchange and peer learning on VNRs in the Arab region.

The 8th workshop is the second to be held in the 2023 cycle. It supports Arab countries presenting their VNRs at the 2023 High-level Political Forum in reporting on their preparations, the challenges faced and the way forward.

This workshop is  held in partnership with the International Organization on Migration (IOM).  It explores the linkages between migration and the Sustainable Development Goals and includes practical exercises to help countries report on migration in VNRs based on a guidance note prepared by ESCWA and IOM.

More details are available in the information note.

Participation in this workshop is by invitation only.
