In order to gain a better understanding of mobility flows and trends through West and Central Africa, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) implements the Displacement Tracking Matrix’s Flow Monitoring (FM) tool at key transit points across the region. 

During the month of February 2021, 12,182 movements were observed at flow monitoring points in Djibouti representing a daily average of 435 movements. This is a 62% increase from the 269 average daily movements observed in January 2021.

Pendant le mois de février 2021, 12 182 mouvements ont été observés aux points de suivi des flux de population à Djibouti, soit une moyenne journalière de 435 mouvements.

In February 2021, a total of 19,301 movements were observed at Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs). This represents a decrease of -19% in comparison to December 2020, when 23,901 movements were oberved.

La transhumance transfrontalière est une pratique d’élevage majeure en Afrique de l'Ouest, et en particulier dans la région du Sahel. En tant qu'activité économique motrice du développement régional, la transhumance a subi au cours des dernières décennies des bouleversements importants.

Cross-border transhumance is a major herding practice in West Africa, and especially in the Sahel region. As an important economic activity and a driver of regional development, transhumance has, in the past decades, been subject to significant changes.

IOM COVID-19 Impact on Points of Entry Bi-Weekly Analysis

As of 28 February 2021, data was collected on 853 PoEs in 19 countries/territories/areas across the SEEECA region. These locations include: 535 land border crossings points, 199 airports, and 119 blue border crossing points (including sea, river and lake ports).

In Week 11 (2021), from 7 March-13 March 2021, a total of 5,191 movements were observed at seven flow monitoring points (FMP) across Somalia, of which 59 per cent were outgoing flows and 41

The spread of COVID-19 around the world continues to threaten the full reopening of borders and regular migration pathways. As of 29 November, the total numbers of cases confirmed in Africa are 1,494,524, including 33,512 deaths, with 9,950 cases and 276 deaths in Zimbabwe alone.

The lockdown restrictions in Zimbabwe due to COVID-19 has drastically reduced the number of cross border movements. On average, the numbers crossing through the Mutare main border post has dropped from 400 to 250 persons a day.

The lockdown restrictions in Zimbabwe due to COVID-19 has drastically reduced the number of cross border movements. As of 10 December 2020, Zimbabwe had 11,081 confirmed cases, including 9,253 recoveries and 305 deaths.

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.
