Summary

In Mali, Flow Monitoring Points are set up at key transit locations across the country (Gao, Timbuktu, Kidal, Menaka, Mopti, Kayes, Segou, Sikasso and Bamako) to monitor the movements of travelers coming from and headed to other countries in West and North Africa. In April 2020, the average daily number of individuals observed at the Flow Monitoring Points (157) decreased by 55 per cent compared to the previous month. This decrease is due to the border closures to stop the spread of COVID-19. Nationals from Burkina Faso, Mali, Guinea, Senegal and the Gambia accounted for 83 per cent of all the migrants recorded at the flow monitoring points. Burkina Faso, ALgeria and Mauritania are major transit countries for migrants after their stopover in Mali.
