Data collaboratives in West Africa

Big Data for Migration Alliance (BD4M)

Founded founded in 2018 by IOM's Global Migration Data Analysis Centre and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, the BD4M is the first-ever dedicated network of stakeholders seeking to facilitate responsible data innovation and collaboration to improve the evidence base on migration and human mobility and its use for policy making.

The overall objective of the BD4M Alliance is to accelerate the responsible and ethical use of non-traditional data sources such as social media, mobile phone data, satellite imagery, artificial intelligence and machine learning to support migration policy on the global, national, and local levels.

BD4M is open to representatives from international organizations and NGOs, the private sector, researchers, governments, and individual experts interested in contributing in various capacities to the mission of the Alliance.
