Policymakers throughout the world have increasingly recognized the development potential of migration as well as the
related need for timely and reliable data on migration that can inform evidence-based policymaking and planning in
this area. Yet, often there is a lack of adequate data and/or analysis necessary for informed policies and programmes.
The Government of Timor-Leste, through the National Consultative Committee (NCC), in collaboration with the African,
Caribbean and Pacific Observatory on Migration, has launched this initiative to identify existing sources of migration
data in the country. This mapping serves as an important starting point for improving migration data and related
migration and development planning in Timor-Leste.
