Summary

In Niger, Flow Monitoring Points are set up at key transit locations across the country (Arlit, Dan Issa, Dan Barto, Madama, Magaria, Séguédine et Tahoua) to monitor the movements of travelers coming from and headed to other countries in West and North Africa. In October 2019, the average daily number of individuals observed at the Flow Monitoring Points (1,657) decreased by 9 per cent compared to the previous month. Nationals from Niger and Nigeria accounted for 95 per cent of all the migrants recorded at the flow monitoring points. Economic migration, including but not limited to long-term migration (39% of flows), seasonal migration (35%) and short-term local movements are the main observed type of movement.
