This measure is covered by all the lines of action, targets and mechanisms suggested in the previous priority measures of this chapter, and it therefore intersects with all the measures the chapter includes. It involves the deployment of resources and common methodologies for estimating the number of irregular migrants. In the case of emigration to countries outside the region, estimates can be obtained from the countries of destination.

This measure is targeted at irregular migration and focuses on bilateral arrangements, but these can clearly be expanded in scale, and consequently one of its main purposes is to ensure respect for the rights of migrants regardless of their migration status, through cooperation between countries in dealing with irregular migration.
