Launch of the Handbook for Improving the Production and Use of Migration Data for Development
The ‘Handbook for Improving the Production and Use of Migration Data for Development’ was produced by the Global Migration Group (GMG) to provide guidance to producers and users of international migration data. Given the importance of migration data for the Global Compact on Migration, this Handbook will become an important tool for policy makers. Please join us for a panel discussion to mark the launch of the Handbook, on the occasion of International Migrants Day, 18 December 2017.
