Governments now understand that their national migration policies cannot work unless they fit into an international model.

That's the message from the UN Special Representative for International Migration, Louise Arbour.

Over the past year, she has been overseeing regional negotiations that will lead to the adoption of a Global Compact for Migration in 2018.

The agreement seeks to bring about safe, orderly and regular migration, in addition to addressing related challenges.

Liz Scaffidi spoke to Ms Arbour ahead of a two-day stocktaking meeting which begins on Monday in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
