Migrant and Displaced Children: Deep in the shadow of COVID-19 - A webinar on how the pandemic impacts children on the move as well as relevant data gaps and needs
The COVID-19 crisis has underscored and exacerbated many pre-existing inequalities that impact migrant and displaced children every day. The International Data Alliance for Children on the Move (IDAC) is organizing a webinar to shed light on the emerging impact of COVID-19 on migrant and displaced boys and girls, using available albeit limited evidence.
Through the lens of COVID-19, the webinar will gather the experiences, knowledge and good practices from participants on data systems strengthening that can protect migrant and displaced children. Only by relying on solid data and evidence can policymakers and practitioners target and design interventions to address the needs and vulnerabilities of children on the move.

Interpretation (English-French-English) via Zoom will be provided. The recording of the webinar will be shared with all registrants.
