|International organisations(s) responsible for global monitoring||

Indicator 10.7.2 is complementary to several related SDGs indicators. These include, but are not limited to:
Indicator 8.8.1 “Frequency rates of fatal and non-fatal occupational injuries, by sex and migrant status”;
Indicator 8.8.2. “Level of national compliance of labour rights (freedom of association and collective bargaining) based on International Labour Organization (ILO) textual sources and national legislation, by sex and migrant status”;
Indicator 10.7.1. “Recruitment cost borne by employee as a proportion of yearly income earned in country of destination”;
Indicator 10.7.3. “Number of people who died or disappeared in the process of migration towards an international destination”;
Indicator 10.7.4. “Proportion of the population who are refugees, by country of origin”;
Indicator 10.c.1 “Remittance costs as a proportion of the amount remitted”.
Indicator 10.7.2 is also complementary to other national migration monitoring frameworks, including IOM’s MGI, which entered its third phase in 2018. The MGI operates as a policy-benchmarking framework and offers insights into policy levers that countries could use to further develop their migration governance. It contains nearly 90 questions related to countries’ national migration policies, which fall under the same six domains as indicator 10.7.2.
