Travel support

UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) to support the global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration

In accordance with OP 31 of A/RES/71/280, a voluntary trust fund has been established for the intergovernmental conference to adopt a global compact for safe, orderly and regular migration and its preparatory process, primarily to support the travel and participation of representatives from developing countries, in particular the least developed countries.

The SRSG for International Migration would also like to encourage representatives from developing countries, in particular the least developed countries, to express their interest in accessing travel support for their participation at the 2018 intergovernmental conference and its preparatory process.  Requests for travel support for government representatives must be submitted through a note verbale from their Permanent Representative in New York to GCmigration@un.org, no later than 30 days before the event for which travel support is requested.

No more than one government representative per country will be supported for each event, and priority will be given to Least Developed Countries (LDCs), on a first-come first-served basis, taking into consideration resources available in the voluntary trust fund, the timing of submission of the request for support, regional and gender balance, and travel support received for previous sessions.

Additional information about the trust fund can be found on the website: http://mptf.undp.org/factsheet/fund/MCS00.
