Since the holding of the first high-level dialogue on international migration and development by the General Assembly in 2006, attention to the issue of international migration and development has grown. Pursuant to its resolutions 63/225 and 65/170 on the issue of international migration and development, in which the Assembly encouraged a balanced, coherent and comprehensive approach to international migration and development and invited relevant organizations of the United Nations system to provide input to the high-level dialogue on International Migration and Development, to be held by Assembly in 2013, CEB took up the issue at successive sessions in 2012. The Board asked the United Nations Population Fund and the International Organization for Migration, in collaboration with the Global Migration Group, to lead an inter-agency consultation process to prepare an analysis of key gaps and challenges in leveraging migration for development, as well as to draft proposed recommendations and outcomes on migration as an input to the high-level dialogue.
