In Niger, Flow Monitoring Points are set up at key transit locations across the country (Arlit, Dan Issa, Dan Barto, Madama, Magaria, Séguédine et Tahoua) to monitor the movements of travelers coming from and headed to other countries in West and North Africa.

Whilst national-level conflict has continued in certain areas of South Sudan, notably in the Equatoria Region, other parts of the country have faced rising instances of intercommunal and localized conflict, oftentimes related to livestock which are distinguished from conflict including national a

Over this reporting period, a total of 202,356 movements were observed at eight (8) Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) at the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Over this reporting period, a total of 32,137 individual movements were observed at six (6) Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) at the Ugandan (UGA) border with South Sudan (SSD).

In October 2019, an average of 707 individuals were observed at Chad FMPs, each day. This represents a 5 per cent decrease compared to September 2019, during which an average of 745 individuals were observed every day.

L’OIM travaille avec les autorités nationales, locales et des partenaires locaux, afin de mieux comprendre les mouvements migratoires à travers l’Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre.

Through the setup of Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs), IOM seeks to quantify migration flows, trends and routes to gain a better understanding of the profiles of observed individuals at entry, transit and/or exit points.

The Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) Points of Entry (PoE) preparedness dashboards for Ntoroko District was covered from 1 October to 31 October 2019. Kasese has twenty-one (21) PoEs with active screening operations in place.

A total of 85,841 migrants and refugees arrived in Europe through different land and sea routes between January and September 2019, 17 per cent less than the same period of 2018 when 103,523 sea and land arrivals were reported, 54 per cent less than the 186,788 arrivals registered in this period

Suite à la fermeture de certaines mines aurifères dans la ville de Miski, 334 orpailleurs (tous des hommes) ont été transportés jusqu’à Faya par des véhicules mis à disposition par les autorités.

Following the closure of gold mines in the town of Miski, 334 gold miners (all of them men) were transported to Faya on board vehicles made available by authorities.

The Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) Points of Entry (PoE) preparedness dashboards for Bundibugyo District was covered from 1 October to 31 October 2019. Bundibugyo has sixteen (16) Points of Entry (PoEs) with active screening operations in place.

In October 2019, a total of 10,554 movements were observed across Ethiopia’s five flow monitoring points (FMPs). This represents a 3% increase in comparison with September 2019 when 10,208 movements were observed.

This report comprises of a set of maps presenting the different migratory flows and trends in Chad. It presents the different population movements recorded from, to and within the Chadian territory and provides information about the profile of mobile populations.

This report presents data collected in September2019 at key transit points in Faya, Rig-Rig, Sarh and Zouarké in Northern, Western and Southern Chad. These Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) were set up to monitor the movements of travellers in transit through the country.

This document offers an analysis of 775 individual surveys carried out between July and September 2019 with travellers crossing the four Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) of Zouarke, Faya, Rig-Rig and Sarh.

This document offers an analysis of the population movement dynamics and the profile of people moving across the Uganda border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

DATA STORIES

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.
