This workshop is part of a two-year, multi-regional project on "Strengthening National Capacities to Deal with International Migration: Maximizing Development Benefits and Minimizing Negative Impacts". The workshop will aim to enhance ESCWA member country capacities to maximize the development benefits of migration through mainstreaming migration into development strategies.  It also aims to improve data-gathering and dissemination of migration statistics, and promote regional dialogue on migration and development issues. This will be achieved through the presentation of a specially-commissioned report on migration and development in the Arab region, presentations from experts, as well as hands-on training.
