This document presents data collected in September 2020 by key informants along the Senegalese coastline on irregular migration movements from Senegal to the Canary Islands (Spain). Between 1 September and 30 September 2020, 61 events were reported.

La pandémie de COVID-19 a eu des conséquences majeures sur la mobilité dans le monde.

Ce document présente des données collectées en septembre 2020 par des informateurs clés habitant le long du littoral sénégalais sur les mouvements de migration irrégulière depuis le Sénégal et à destination des îles Canaries (Espagne).

The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements.

The COVID-19 outbreak first reported in the People’s Republic of China in late 2019 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on 11 March 2020. On 20 March, the first two cases were confirmed in Haiti and the country remains at high risk of rapid

From 25 July to 5 August 2020, IOM surveyed 164 Myanmar migrants in the Mueang Ranong district of Ranong province in order to better understand their situation and vulnerabilities following the outbreak of COVID-19 in Thailand.

Pendant le mois de septembre 2020, 7 540 mouvements ont été observés aux points de suivi des flux de population à Djibouti, soit une moyenne journalière de 251 mouvements.

During the month of September 2020, 7,540 movements were observed at flow monitoring points in Djibouti representing a daily average of 251 movements. This is an increase of 1% in comparison of the 248 daily average movements observed in August. 

In Week 42, from 11 October 2020 to 17 October 2020, a total of 4,496 movements were observed at various flow monitoring points (FMP) across Somalia, of which 75 per cent were incoming flow

About

Migration.iom.int is an IOM online platform designed to enhance access to Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) migration flow information products, including a visualization of population flows. The DTM also has a second online platform, displacement.iom.int, designed to visualize internal displacement monitored through the DTM systems; this platform facilitates a better understanding of mobility trends within a country in assessed areas.

 

The DTM is a system designed to track and monitor displacement and population mobility, provide critical information to decision-makers and responders during crises, and contribute to better understandings of population flows. The DTM includes four standard components – each comprising various tools and methods – that can be applied, adapted and combined as relevant in a particular context. The standard components are: (i) mobility tracking; (ii) flow monitoring; (iii) registration and (iv) surveys. Data visualized on the flow.iom.int website is retrieved from flow monitoring exercises. 

A Flow Monitoring exercise collects information on the volume and basic characteristics of populations transiting through selected locations - referred to as Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) – during specific observation hours. Data collected includes previous transit point(s), next destination, intended destination (when possible) and means of transportation, as well as the number, sex and nationality of migrants passing through the Flow Monitoring Point. Data is collected overtime through periodic cycles.

Once baseline data is collected through Flow Monitoring exercises. When required and as needed, Flow Monitoring Surveys (FMS) are then implemented to collect multi-layer and multi-themed data on mobile populations. FMS collect data at the individual level and include, but are not limited to, information on basic socio-economic profiles, information regarding the journey (cost, routes, modes of transport, intermediaries) and some basic data on the intentions, expectations, and perceptions of the final destination that migrants have. The findings of these surveys are used in the overall analysis presented in the IOM Flow Monitoring reports.
