This report presents the findings of a survey conducted by IOM Iraq during the months of November and December 2015, in the framework of the DFID-funded project “Understanding complex migration flows from Iraq to Europe through movement tracking and awareness campaigns”.

This study is the result of interviews with 473 individuals (November–December 2015) migrating from Iraq to Europe. One of the report’s key findings is the lack of clear-cut, homogeneous and predictable answers, once more highlighting the complexity of migration.

2,241,484 IDPs (334,608 households) were identified in Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Borno, Gombe, Taraba, Yobe, Nasarawa, Plateau, Kaduna, Kano, Zamfara states and Abuja. The highest number of IDPs are in Borno (1,525,404 IDPs), followed by Yobe (139,550) and Adawama (132,626 IDPs).

2,241,484 IDPs in 334,608 households were identified in Round 8 assessments from January to February 2016. 55% of the IDP population in the sites are children, 53% are female. The dashboard includes a map of displacement severity by Local Government Area (LGA) and ward.

186,268 IDPs in 34,240 households were identified in 84 displacement sites. 54% of the IDP population are children. The dashboard includes a map showing the location and population of sites by Local Government Area (LGA) assessed.

Between 8 October 2015 and 22 February 2016 IOM field staff in Greece, fYROM, Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary amassed interviews with 5,700 migrants and asylum seekers, of which 413 people were interviewed over the week from 16 – 22 February.

Reporting Period: 15—23 February 2016

For these first results, 1,042 migrants and refugees were interviewed from 07 December 2015 to 22 February 2016. 10% of respondents answered ‘yes’ to one of the trafficking and exploitation indicators, based on their own direct experience.

Flow monitoring points are placed at known migrant passing points along the Niger migratory route. Data is collected daily at FMPs to inform migrant movements and profiles. The data collected provides a snapshot of migrant movements through the region.

Cumulatively from the first week of June 2015 to 12 February 2016, 37,806 households representing 67,685 individuals have crossed the border into Haitian territory. 34.7% were female while 65.3% were male. 1,011 presumed unaccompanied minors were identified.

This dashboard presents the preliminary findings of a survey conducted by IOM/DTM Iraq during the months of November and December 2015 in the framework of the DFID-funded project “Understanding complex migration flows from Iraq to Europe through movement tracking and awareness campaigns”.

Between January and December 2015, a total of 663,295 Afghans spontaneously returned and were deported through Torkham, Islam Qala, Milak and Spin Boldak borders. Compared with the same period in 2014, spontaneous returns through the four borders have increased by 31% (416,457 vs.

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.
