In refugee situations, multiple actors … collect, at great cost, a range of data with little consistency and comparability. Further technical efforts are needed to harmonize data collection systems on definitions, questions, sampling, or post-enumeration surveys, and to strengthen the capacity of national statistical offices where needed.

The 2023 World Development Report (WDR) – Migrants, Refugees and Societies – highlights the issues and inconsistencies in the current data on these populations and the importance of accurate and consistent data as a basis for effective programs and policies.
To support the operationalization of the WDR, the World Bank-UNHCR Joint Data Center on Forced Displacement (JDC) is inviting one of the Co-Directors of the Report and leaders in data on migration and forced displacement to discuss the actions that are being taken to improve the data landscape for refugees, IDPs, stateless people and their hosts.
