Summary

This report presents data collected at key transit points in Faya, Kalait and Rig-Rig, in Northern and Western Chad. These Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) were set up in order to monitor the movements of travellers in transit through the country. The FMP in Rig-Rig was installed in April 2019. In April 2019, 559 individuals were, on average, observed at Chad FMPs every day. This represents a significant increase of 43 per cent since March 2019, during which an average of 390 people were observed each day. The main type of movement of travellers observed at FMPs were local short-term movements (53%). The majority of travellers (83%) were adults (65% were man and 18% were women), while 17 per cent were children (8% of boys and 9% of girls). The observed migrant population was almost entirely composed of Chadian nationals (98%), although 2 per cent, all observed at the Rig-Rig FMP, were Nigerien nationals.
