A total of 26,677 movements were observed during this month of June, representing an increase of 77% in comparison with June 2020 when 15,066 movements were observed.

According to the latest available figures from the Turkish Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM), there are more than 4.8* million foreign nationals present in Turkish territory, 3.7 million of whom are seeking international protection.

During the month of June 2021, 11,462 movements were observed at flow monitoring points in Djibouti representing a daily average of 382 movements. This is a decrease of 17% from the 458 average daily movements observed in May 2021.

Pendant le mois de juin 2021, 11 462 mouvements ont été observés aux points de suivi des flux de population Djibouti, soit une moyenne journalière de 382 mouvements. Cela représente une baisse de 17% par rapport à la moyenne journalière de 458 mouvements observés pendant le mois de mai 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent prevention measures (such as movement restrictions) that have been put in place by the various governments in the region continue to negatively impact the living conditions of vulnerable populations, including those of migrants transiting through Djibouti.

From 6 - 7 July 2021, IOM conducted a rapid needs assessment to better understand the situation and vulnerabilities of migrants affected by the lockdown of construction sites and work camps in Bangkok Metropolitan Area due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Thailand.

Afin de mieux comprendre les mouvements et tendances migratoires en Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre, l’OIM, à travers la Matrice de suivi des déplacements (Displacement Tracking Matrix, DTM), met en œuvre l’activité de Suivi des flux de populations (FM, de l’anglais Flow Monitoring).

On 08 July 2021, 52 Chadian nationals (all adult males) were collectively expelled from Libya and arrived in the town of Ounianga-Kébir (Ennedi-Ouest Province). Since mid-April 2020, 1,667 individuals have been collectively expelled from Libya to Ounianga-Kébir.

Le 08 juillet 2021, 52 personnes de nationalité tchadienne (tous des hommes adultes) collectivement expulsées de la Libye, sont arrivées dans la ville d’Ounianga Kébir (province de l’Ennedi-Ouest).

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.
