In Chad, the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) collects data on forced displacement and migration flows, as well as information on the profiles and needs of mobile populations.

This report provides detailed results of a study, conducted by IOM in 2020 in Côte d'Ivoire, Senegal, Guinea and The Gambia.

Ce rapport présente les résultats d'une enquête mênée en 2020 en Côte d'Ivoire, au Sénégal, en Guinée et en Gsmbie. Le rapport évalue les niveaux, types et les modalités des dettes des migrants au cours de leur parcours migratoire, qu'elle soit économique, 'sociale' ou 'morale'.

In February 2021, a total of 17,216 movements were observed across Ethiopia’s five flow monitoring points (FMPs) whereby outgoing movements during February have continued to be significantly higher (77%) than incoming movements (23%). The percentage of outgoing versus incoming movements have clim

DTM’s Flow Monitoring Registry (FMR) surveys people on the move at key transit points within South Sudan (SSD) and at its borders.

In Week 13, from 21 March - 27 March 2021, a total of 4,782  movements were observed at seven flow monitoring points (FMP) across Somalia, of which 46 per cent were outgoing flows and 54 per cent were incoming

During the reporting period, 73 per cent of observed flows originated from Zimbabwe whereas 15 per cent of observed flows departed from South Africa.

Following the border closure in Ethiopia and due to the stricter border management policies in Yemen, some of the migrants who were transiting through Djibouti on their way to or from the Arabian Peninsula found themselves stranded in the country.

Suite à la fermeture des frontières en Ethiopie et aux renforcements des contrôles frontaliers au Yémen, certains des migrants qui transitaient par Djibouti en partance ou de retour de la Péninsule Arabique se sont retrouvés bloqués à Djibouti.

IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) continued operating Displacement Site Flow Monitoring (DSFM) at the gates of Naivasha IDP camp. During this period, 2,111 interviews representing 8,296 individual movements in to and out of the camp were conducted.

IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) continued operating Displacement Site Flow Monitoring (DSFM) at the gates of Wau Masna Collective Centre. In the last quarter of 2020 (October - December), 1,804 interviews were conducted, representing 4,465 individual movements.

IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) continued operating Displacement Site Flow Monitoring (DSFM) at the gates of Malakal Protection of Civilians (PoC) site. During this period, 3,270 interviews were conducted representing 4,964 individual movements in to and out of the site.

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.
