The International Data Alliance for Children on the Move (IDAC) is a cross-sectoral global coalition comprised of governments (including experts from national statistical offices and migration-relevant line ministries), international and regional organizations, NGOs, think tanks, academics, and civil society. The main objective of IDAC is to improve statistics and data on migrant and forcibly displaced children with the goal to support evidence-based policymaking that protects and empowers them.
IDAC also aims to support the implementation of the commitments of the two Global Compacts on Migration and Refugees as well as the child migration relevant targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
IDAC recognizes that migration and displacement are dynamic issues that require flexible and adaptable approaches in a constantly evolving environment. The key tasks of IDAC include mapping data gaps and data needs, identifying measurement challenges and providing solutions, strengthening data systems and capacities in countries and creating a space for countries, international and regional organizations, NGOs, think tanks, academics and civil society to share experiences and good practices.
