Formal Economy Recommendation, 2015 (No. 204); (Based on E/CN.6/2017/3, para 49 (t))

trafficking; (E/CN.6/2017/3, para 49 (u))

(t) Strengthen synergies between international migration and development by ensuring
safe, orderly and regular migration policies that uphold women’s human rights in the context of implementation of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants (General Assembly
resolution 71/1); (E/CN.6/2017/3, para 49 (v))
