The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is using a unique too= l to monitor the assistance and collect information on the victims of traff= icking (VoTs) it assists. The IOM global human trafficking database is a gl= obal repository of only primary data on registered victims of trafficking (= VoTs), and contains data on approximately nearly 16,000 registered victims = of more than 85 different nationalities trafficked to more than 100 destina= tion countries (December, 2010).=20
It is a standardized anti-trafficking data-management tool available to =
all IOM missions and is actively used throughout all regions of the world. =
Containing only primary information, this unique tool specifically facilita=
tes the management of the whole IOM direct assistance, movement and reinteg=
ration process through a centrally managed system as well as mapping the vi=
ctim's trafficking experience. The structure follows the format of the acco=
mpanying IOM VoT questionnaires, used by IOM missions and partnering organi=
zations involved in direct assistance, and containing a wealth of informati=
on both of a quantitative and qualitative nature: the Screening Interview F=
orm is intended to assess whether the individual is a victim of trafficking=
and thus eligible for an IOM's assistance project; and the Assistance Inte=
rview Form stands to track the nature of direct assistance given along with=
documenting further details of the trafficking experience.
Aims and ongoing activities:=20
While initially designed as a case management tool for IOM counter-traff=
icking direct assistance programmes, the system quickly demonstrated its ad=
ded value to research. The aim of the database is to contribute to the gene=
ral knowledge on trafficking in persons, trafficking trends and to help gov=
ernments, research institutes as well as other institutions to better tailo=
r CT policies and programmes. For more information please contact CTS-DB@io=

3) Extended Migration Profi= le in Moldova=20
Migration profile represents a framework for data collection and analysi=
s in support of strategic policy planning at the national and regional leve=
ls. It will bring existing information from different sources together in a=
structured manner as a means to identify and develop strategies to address=
data and policy development needs. In order to be an effective information=
tool for policy making, the Migration Profile needs to be government-owned=
and updated regularly.
Enhancing governmental capacities to more effectively manage migration b=
y preparing country a Migration Profile (MP) which is to be used as a polic=
y instrument to promote more comprehensive and proactive approaches.

4) Harmonized Data collecti= on as a sound basis for policy-making (Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Rus= sia and Tajikistan)=20
This pilot project implemented by OSCE, IOM, UNECE and ILO aims at estab=
lishing a harmonized data collection process in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and =
Tajikistan through the development of a common draft template for harmonize=
d migration data collection which will come as a result of assessing the av=
ailability of migration data and existing gaps for data collection in these=
The overall objective of the present project is to buil= d institutional capacity among government officials and representatives of = national and regional statistical bodies in the five EurAsEC countries for = establishing a harmonized migration data collection process through develop= ing common templates for harmonized migration data collection (statistical = indicators) which will foster data collection and sharing in the regional.<= /p>=20
The specific objectives of the project proposal are:=20
=E2=80=A2 to assess the availability of aggregated migration data in Bel=
arus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan and their capacity for =
data collection with existing mechanisms;
=E2=80=A2 to detect current= gaps for establishing a harmonized data collection process in these countr= ies and develop a common draft template for harmonized migration data colle= ction;
=E2=80=A2 to provide the target groups in the regional confere= nce with information on the current data availability and existing gaps in = the five countries, as well as international and regional legal frameworks = for the collection of data and international cooperation at the internation= al, regional and bilateral level.

5) Central Asia Regional Mi= gration Programme (CARM)=20
This project aims at improving the collection and sharing of migration d=
ata between governmental agencies in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Data is oft=
en scattered with different agencies which makes it difficult to have a com=
prehensive overview on past and current migration patterns. Data is usually=
shared upon specific request; no consistent data-sharing system exists amo=
ng the agencies. This project is implemented by IOM in cooperation with UNI=
FEM and World Bank. IOM's role in the project consists in establishing a me=
chanism which would allow relevant government agencies to collect and share=
migration data in a more efficient way.
Establish a data-collection and -sharing mechanism to foster the exchang=
e of available information between governmental agencies in Kyrgyzstan and =

on and dissemination of data (completed);
