Summary

DTM Niger monitors migration flows at seven key transit points around the country: Arlit, Séguédine/Madama, Magaria, Dan Barto, Dan Issa and Tahoua. In June 2019, 1,740 individuals were on average observed crossing FMPs daily. This represents a 21 per cent decrease when compared to the previous month. The majority of travelers (73%) were men, while 18 per cent were women and 9 per cent were children. Niger and Nigeria were both the main countries of provenance (77% and 19%) and of destination (80% and 14%) of travellers. Nationals from Niger, Nigeria and Chad accounted for 95 per cent of all the migrants recorded at the FMPs. Economic migration, including but not limited to long-term migration of more than six months (36% of flows), seasonal migration (31%), short-term movements (30%), tourism (2%) and forced movement due to a conflict (1%) were the primary types of movements observed.
