Characteristics of the process for gathering and using administrative records on migration in Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean
Evidence-based migration policies are a fundamental component of good migration governance. However, several recent studies and assessments review the multiple challenges to ensure the availability of up-to-date data and information and to understand the reality of migrations in the region.
Responding to this need, the International Organization for Migration developed the project under which this study is framed, which is financed through the IOM Development Fund. This project precisely seeks to promote collaboration among countries and contribute to the strengthening of their institutional capacities. The product of this collaboration will be the
creation of a Regional System of migratory statistics that provides the necessary information for the elaboration of national policies based on evidence.
