 The current outbreak of COVID-19 has affected global mobility in the form of various travel disruptions and restrictions.

The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements. Information is collected through key informant interviews or direct observation.

Le suivi des urgences a pour but de recueillir des informations sur les mouvements importants et soudains de populations. Les informations sont collectées à travers des entretiens avec des informateurs clés ou des observations directes.

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.

Ce tableau de bord offre une analyse des tendances de mobilité des populations observées au niveau de cinq (5) points de suivi des flux non-officiels établis à la frontière entre le Burundi et la République Démocratique du Congo à Kagazi Tr4, Kagazi Tr6, Kigazura, Ndava Tr6 et Rukana Tr1.

In Week 39, from 20 September to 26 September 2020, a total of 4,099 movements were observed at various flow monitoring points (FMP) across Somalia, of which 65 per cent were incoming flows and 35 per cent were outgoing flows.

DTM Niger monitors migration flows at seven key transit points around the country: Arlit, Séguédine/Madama, Magaria, Dan Barto, Dan Issa and Tahoua.

In light of the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Thailand, migrants and non-Thai populations, irrespective of their legal status, face a new set of challenges and vulnerabilities.

During the month of August 2020, 7,682 movements were observed at flow monitoring points in Djibouti representing a daily average of 248 movements. This is an increase of 84% in comparison to the 135 daily average movements observed in July.

Pendant le mois d’août 2020, 7 682 mouvements ont été observés aux points de suivi des flux de population à Djibouti, soit une moyenne journalière de 248 mouvements.

This report explores the profile of migrants travelling on migration routes within and from West and Central Africa. It analyses determinants of vulnerability, trying to identify the most vulnerable populations and the risks that they are exposed to along their journeys.

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.

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.
