Pakistan, a country that hosts one of the five largest refugee populations worldwide as well as hosting migrant populations, has faced and continues to face complex human mobility and migration dynamics related to natural disasters, crises, development and climate change. Labour migration to and from Pakistan also constitutes an important aspect of mobility in the country. Today over 8,800,000 Pakistanis live abroad, with an estimated 4,000,000 Pakistanis in the Persian Gulf region. The nature of migration in the country poses a challenge not only to actors in the area of migration management but to migrants themselves. These challenges can also be exacerbated by a lack of migration data, which can lead to misperceptions of migration, its impacts and the design of necessary policy and interventions. Understanding data and information gaps, designing supplementary targeted data collection initiatives and ensuring dedicated research and analysis will provide better insights to address these challenges.
The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Regional Evidence for Migration Analysis and Policy (REMAP) project was developed in response to the critical need to collect and analyze information on human mobility in, to and from Pakistan and to contribute to evidence-based development programming and to enhance national and regional (migration) policy development. To achieve this, DTM REMAP project aims to establish a comprehensive data collection and analysis infrastructure in Pakistan, as well as work with government agencies/offices, research institutions/individuals, and local, national, and international actors implementing humanitarian and development programing to: (i) improve understanding of the (internal) human mobility and migration dynamics, drivers, modalities and vulnerabilities and (ii) increase national and regional interoperability and harmonization of data collection initiatives.
