Needs Assessment for the Knowledge Platform and Connection hub

On behalf of the United Nations Network on Migration, the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) conducted a needs assessment to inform the design of the KP and CH, with the goal of identifying gaps in existing evidence and limitations in government capacity to use information effectively for migration governance. Reflecting the whole-of government and whole-of-society approaches taken by the Global Compact for Migration, MPI interviewed and surveyed policymakers and other stakeholders from around the world to ask how they currently absorb and use evidence.

The resulting needs assessment reveals the form, content and character of knowledge and data gaps, looks at the broader role of information in the decision-making process and identifies tools and resources that could improve the quality of migration policymaking and governance.
