EU Emergency relocation scheme 2015 - 2018

 

Based on Commission proposals, the Justice and Home Affairs Council adopted in September 2015 two Decisions to relocate asylum seekers from Italy and Greece, to assist them in dealing with the pressures of the refugee crisis. Under the emergency relocation scheme, up to 106,000 asylum seekers with a high chance of having their applications successfully processed (EU average recognition rate of over 75%) were to be relocated from Greece and Italy, where they had arrived, to other Member States where they would have their asylum applications processed. 
 
Between October 2015 and April 2018, IOM assisted the relocation of 34,694 persons in need of international protection with pre-departure health assessments, pre-departure orientation and movement management. A majority of them were male (63%), adults (68%), and of Syrian (52%), Eritrean (35%) and Iraqi (11%) nationality. The scheme also benefitted 585 unaccompanied or separated migrant children.
 
Due to the strict eligibility criteria, the changes in criteria during the implementation of the scheme, as well as the drop in arrivals to Greece and Italy during the project implementation, the number of assisted beneficiaries is considerably lower than the target of 106,000 persons. Almost all eligible persons registered in Greece and in Italy have been successfully relocated to another European state with the assistance of IOM. 

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

A total of 59,551 regular movements (26,800 at Beitbridge Border Post, 11,400 at Forbes Border Post and 21,351 at Chirundu Border Post) were observed during the month in review.

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.

Since it was initially reported on 31 December 2019, the disease known as COVID-19 has spread rapidly across the globe, leading the World Health Organization (WHO) to declare it a pandemic on 11 March 2020.

Over the reporting period, a total of 7,738 movements were observed at four (4) Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) at the Ugandan border with South Sudan; this represents an increase of 46% in terms of average daily movements as compared to the previous month.

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, IOM has developed a global mobility database to map and gather data  on the locations, status and different restric

According to the latest available figures from the Turkish Directorate General of Migration Management (DGMM), there are more than 4.6*million foreign nationals present in Turkish territory, 3.6* million of whom are seeking international protection.

Commencing in October 2019, DTM Sudan began its preparation for the first round of Mobility Tracking; this started with the training of IOM field teams across the seven states of implementation, namely North, East, South, West and Central Darfur, as well as South and West Kordofan.

L'outil de suivi des urgences a pour but de collecter et de fournir des informations à jour sur les évènements liés au COVID-19 enregistrés aux points d’entrée ainsi qu’aux points de suivi des flux (FMP) de la DTM.

Ce document propose une analyse de 4 988 enquêtes individuelles menées entre janvier et mars 2020 auprès de voyageurs transitant par les sept points de suivi de flux populations (FMPs) : d'Arlit, de Dan Barto, de Dan Issa, de Madama, de Magaria, de Séguédine et de Tahoua.

By 28 June 2020, South Sudan recorded 1,989 cumulative COVID-19 confirmed cases, and 36 deaths. The overall number of tests conducted stands at 10,529.

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.
