Improving Data on International Migration

Towards Agenda 2030 and the Global Compact on Migration - International Conference
Federal Foreign Office, Berlin

GMDAC organised an international conference on 2-3 December 2016, with support from the German Foreign Office, the United States State Department and the European Commission’s Knowledge Centre on Migration and Development. The conference brought together leading international experts on migration and development data, together with representatives from governments, civil society and the private sector from across the world.

With a focus on practical steps that could be taken to address data gaps, build data capacities and highlight innovative practices globally, the conference also provided an opportunity to discuss the follow-up to the September 19 United Nations Summit for Refugees and Migrants, and how to strengthen the collection, sharing and analysis of data on international migration
