The Mayors Migration Council (MMC) is a mayor-led coalition that accelerates ambitious global action on migration and displacement to create a world where urban migrants, displaced people, and receiving communities can thrive.
With most of the world’s migrants and displaced people living in cities, our mission is to help mayors get a seat at the global policy table and unlock resources to accelerate and scale local solutions. Together, these actions will make a tangible difference in the lives of urban migrants, displaced people, and receiving communities worldwide.

While national governments deal with borders and visa regimes, it is at the city level that the most important needs of migrants and refugees are met, from housing to healthcare to employment.
What We Do
To fulfill our mission, we help mayors and the cities they lead influence policy decisions at the national and international level; unlock financial and technical resources to implement local solutions; raise awareness on city leadership among global audiences; generate and share evidence on urban migration and displacement; build a coalition of local and global champions.
Local Action, Global Impact
