What drives migration?
The world today faces an unprecedented number of forcibly displaced people with more than 65 million people displaced internally or across borders. While the demand for responses and solutions increases, the international community is facing substantial difficulties effectively utilizing data to predict, understand and address the underlying causes of mixed migratory flows.
The lack of common, fact-based understanding of migration drivers - including the impact of development, aid and prosperity in a globalized world, means that governments and other actors lack a common basis for policy discussion and solution development. There is a need for an objective and fact-based forecasting platform that may provide support for decision making.
