The African Union Institute for Statistics (STATAFRIC), Statistics Sweden and IOM's Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) are pleased to invite you to their first "Online African School on Migration Statistics" that will be held online on 2—4 December 2020.

This joint initiative is a contribution to address the urgent need for timely and quality migration data, which are essential for informed policymaking and for the integration of migration in development and protection strategies at the national, regional and global level. The aim is to enforce national capacities for collecting, producing, and disseminating migration data across countries in Africa.

The target audience primarily includes African NSO officials, but the event is open to anyone with an interest in the topic or wanting to deepen their knowledge on migration statistics.
