Amb. David Karsgaard noted the call for an international
conference on migration and development. Canada could support such a
conference if it builds on the ICPD consensus and there is broad
agreement in advance on its objectives and process. ECOSOC should
provide system-wide coordination in implementing the Programme of
Action. While all UN bodies and related organizations should review their
programmes and strategies, there should be no shifts in responsibilities
until after a comprehensive review of their mandates.
