Data Bulletin 15: Migrants’ access to basic services

This Data Bulletin focuses on Migrants’ access to basic services – The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development highlights the role basic services – health; education; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); and social protection – play in achieving sustainable development. Likewise, migrants’ access to basic services is instrumental to ensure they can maximize the benefits from migration, are able to support families in origin countries and can contribute to host countries as healthy and productive workers.

IOM’s “Data Bulletin Series: Informing the Implementation of the Global Compact for Migration” spans a broad range of topics covered by the Global Compact for Migration, highlighting currently available data sources as well as data gaps and challenges relevant to each of them. Each Data Bulletin contains illustrative examples of initiatives and recommendations of investments needed to strengthen the evidence base underpinning the respective thematic area. The Data Bulletins are meant to provide a useful resource for decision makers as they begin to think about implementation of the Global Compact for Migration and the related data needs.
