3rd Webinar: Migration data for the protection of migrant children in the African context
Millions of children are migrants. They are fleeing war or poverty or the consequences of climate change. These children represent an extremely vulnerable population exposed to danger, exploitation and abuse of all kinds, deprivation and discrimination during their migration journey. They often lack access to education and appropriate medical care, and experience difficulties in adapting to new cultures they encounter. The protection of migrant children and the formulation of appropriate programmes to address their needs depend on the availability of reliable, accurate and up-to-date data. This webinar aims to discuss the availability of data on child migration in the African context as well as the possible ways to improve these data and filling data gaps.
