Through the setup of Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs), IOM seeks to quantify migration flows, trends and routes to gain a better understanding of the profiles of observed individuals at entry, transit and/or exit points. This dashboard is an overview of the data collected at these FMPs in October 2019. Results show that the average daily number of individuals observed in October, at the FMPs in Nigeria, was 1,192. The data was collected from 1 – 25 October. This represents a <1 per cent decrease compared to the daily average of September 2019. Nigeria, Niger, Chad, and Cameroon were the main countries of  departure and intended destination for individuals passing through FMPs. In addition, the main types of flows identified were: short term local movements (41% of all flows); economic migration of more than six months (39% of all flows); seasonal migration (14% of all flows); and tourism (6% of all flows). Nigerian (54%), Nigerien (33%), Chadian (5%), Malian (3%) and Cameroonian (2%), Libyan (2%) nationals were the main nationalities recorded this month.
