Global Compact for Migration: Enhancing African Migration Governance

The final outcome document of the Global Compact for Migration calls for developing evidence-based migration policies and discourses. The importance of data for well-informed policy making is also emphasised. The compact follows a comprehensive approach in order to optimise the benefits of migration and address challenges. Different languages, legal systems and levels of technological and socio-economic development between African countries could pose a challenge for building shared data and information systems.
