L’OIM travaille en collaboration avec le Gouvernement afin de mieux comprendre les dynamiques migratoires à Djibouti et appréhender le profil des migrants qui transitent dans le pays. Le suivi des flux de population est une activité qui consiste à collecter des données dans les localités où transitent les migrants. Cette activité a débuté en Mai 2017 dans 6 localités (Loyada, Guelilé, Galafi, Tadjourah-ville, Orobor et Obock-ville) situées dans les régions d’Arta, Ali-Sabieh, Dikhil, Tadjourah et Obock.

Galgadud region remains at the epicenter of continued insecurity. The withdrawal of African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and local troops from locations in El Bur and subsequent take-over by insurgents has sparked new waves of insecurity and displacement.

Furthermore, the ETT registered 26 IDP sites in Dhuusamarreeb and six in Cadaado between 3 and 10 June 2017.
