Safeguarding human rights, ensuring a safe and orderly journey and guaranteed health services are some of the key issues facing young migrants.

That's highlighted by Romesh Silva, technical specialist for the UNFPA, who was at UN Headquarters for an event on Health and Human Mobility this week.

One of UNFPA's goals is improving available data on young migrants.

The hope is that innovation will lead to real-time information gathering, to define detailed migration paths.

Mr Silva spoke to Agnese Pastorino, and brought up the example of an innovative project developed by UNFPA, in partnership with the Danish Refugee Council and what's known as the Regional Mixed Migration Secretariat.
