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

Between July and September 2020 the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Libya increased exponentially (from below 900 by end of June to over 34,500 cases by end of September) as community transmission continued to affect larger number of people. Simultaneou

In the third quarter of 2020, a total of 30,232 migrants and refugees were registered arriving to Europe through the three Mediterranean routes, which is 33 per cent less than the 45,308 arrivals registered in the same period in 2019 and 35 per cent less than

IOM COVID-19 Impact on Key Locations of Internal Mobility Bi-Weekly Analysis i

The current COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on mobility across the globe. Containment measures have affected both international mobility and internal movements within national borders.

This document presents data collected in September 2020 by key informants along the Senegalese coastline on irregular migration movements from Senegal to the Canary Islands (Spain). Between 1 September and 30 September 2020, 61 events were reported.

La pandémie de COVID-19 a eu des conséquences majeures sur la mobilité dans le monde.

Ce document présente des données collectées en septembre 2020 par des informateurs clés habitant le long du littoral sénégalais sur les mouvements de migration irrégulière depuis le Sénégal et à destination des îles Canaries (Espagne).

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.

The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements.

Dans le cadre de ses activités de suivi des mouvements de la transhumance (TTT), l’Organisation internationale pour les migrations (OIM) en Mauritanie, en collaboration avec le Groupement National des Associations Pastorales (GNAP), met en place des activités de comptage des troupeaux et des élev

The COVID-19 outbreak first reported in the People’s Republic of China in late 2019 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on 11 March 2020. On 20 March, the first two cases were confirmed in Haiti and the country remains at high risk of rapid

The current outbreak of COVID-19 has affected global mobility in the form of various travel disruptions and restrictions. To better understand how COVID-19 affects global mobility, DTM has developed a COVID-19 database mapping the different restrictions to provide a global overview.

About 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,, 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 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.
