The consideration of migration as a dimension that is part of the regional integration and development processes requires more and more coordination and consensus among the countries involved. Access to information on data related to migration serves as the basis for guiding the efforts of states in the development of migration policies based on evidence. The collection, systematization and analysis of reliable data are necessary tools to promote effective migration management. This will contribute towards the fulfillment of targets 10.7 and 17.18 of the 2030 Agenda.
