World: Workshop Report: Europe Regional Information Management Workshop (RIMWG) “Developing Collaboration at Regional and Country Level” IOM Regional Office Vienna, 21-22 November 2018

Context Background Timely, disaggregated data and contextual information related to populations on the move, stranded, or seeking asylum, is imperative to a well-informed, well-managed, protection sensitive and collective response across international borders, governments and regions. The Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the Global Compacts on Migration and Refugees call upon all states to implement well-managed migration and refugee protection policies. To support states in meeting these obligations, there are increasing calls for stronger and more comprehensive data, analysis and actionable information to ensure that vulnerable groups, including migrants and refugees overall, as well as children, are not “left behind” in policy and operational responses. In 2015, an increasing number of people risked their lives to cross the Mediterranean Sea in search of safety and better lives. An effective coordinated response was needed to support the humanitarian community in making informed decisions in timely manners. Refugees and migrants arriving on the three Mediterranean Routes irregularly and then taking their journeys onward to their preferred destination countries posed significant challenges both for host governments, as well as humanitarian agencies, to understand their profile, protection needs and to respond in coordinated manners. To respond to those challenges and to fulfil the information needs of the humanitarian community for evidencebased decision-making, a Regional Information Management Working Group (RIMWG) was established. Co– chaired by IOM, UNICEF and UNCHR, the fist RIMWG meeting was held in December 2015 in Geneva. The purpose of the RIMWG was to coordinate information management activities at the inter-agency level, exchange and harmonise datasets in mixed migration flows, and build IM capacities in each agency for further collaboration. The overarching objectives of the RIMWG was to support the humanitarian community with relevant information in interagency coordination and response, as well as to support evidence-based policy making.
