Objective of the programme
The International Organization for Migration’s Protection Division is providing support to front-line counter-trafficking organizations to strengthen their Victim Case Management Systems (VCMS) and data management capacity. This work is undertaken with the high-level objective of improving the production of standardized, quality data on human trafficking to provide evidence for policy and programme design. This support includes the provision of a digital information management toolkit and data standards and tailored capacity-building resources.
Leaving no one behind
Timely, accurate, disaggregated data and evidence are fundamental requirements to meet the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda’s transformative promise of leaving no one behind. Data and evidence delivered timely and appropriately disaggregated are particularly important for vulnerable people to ensure their safety and protection. IOM’s VCMS works to operationalize this promise by means of standardizing data and evidence in the field of counter-trafficking, actively supporting the realization of several SDGs, including most prominently SDG 8.7. ‘End Modern Slavery, Trafficking and Child Labour’.
