United Nations World Data Forum 2021

Date: -
Location: Bern, Switzerland

The Programme of the UN World Data Forum is organized around six main thematic areas covering a wide range of topics, and developed through an open call for session proposals.

The forum is designed to bring together representatives, users and producers, from various sectors working with data to support the implementation of Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. Contributions under each thematic area should showcase practical solutions and hands-on experiences, and contribute to delivering better data for evidence-based policymaking and address pressing issues faced by the global data and statistical communities.

Throughout the forum, participants will have opportunities to interact in a variety of session formats, including plenary sessions, round table dialogues, debates, break-out spaces, innovation labs and workshops, knowledge sharing spaces, exhibits and virtual forums.

Relevant sessions on migration include:

  • Stronger migration data and statistics for realizing the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development (TA3.12) on Monday, 4 October 2021
