Summary

DTM Niger monitors migration flows at seven key transit points around the country: Arlit, Séguédine, Madama, Dan Issa, Dan Barto and Magaria. In February 2019, 1,436 individuals were on average observed crossing FMPs daily. This represents a 32 per cent decrease when compared to the previous month. The majority of travellers (71%) were men, while 17 per cent were women and 12 per cent were children. Niger and Nigeria were both the main countries of provenance (81% and 15%) and of destination (79% and 12%) of travellers. Nationals from Niger, Nigeria and Chad accounted for 92% of all the migrants recorded at the FMPs. Economic migration, including but not limited to long-term migration of more than six months (40% of flows), seasonal migration (34%) and short term movements (25%), were the primary types of movements observed.
