This report presents two sets of data from two different DTM operations. The first set of data originates from DTM’s round 8 Mobility Tracking (MT) data collection operations which took place between January to February 2017 delivering a country-wide static snapshot of Libya’s migrant population. Mobility Tracking data was collected formal of Libya’s 22 mintika, 100 baladiyas and 661 muhallas across Libya. Migrants were identified as residing in 22 mintika, 99 baladiya and 444 muhalla.
The second set of data originates from DTM’s Flow Monitoring (FM) operations from December 2016 to March 2017. Collected during the same period as Mobility Tracking, Flow Monitoring presents a cumulative dynamic quantitative analysis from a sample of migrant-focused surveys in 9 regions in the country.
The report aims to present a comprehensive yet digestible picture of Libya’s complicated migration profile.

The most significant incident in Upper Nile occurred following the SPLA advance from Unity into Panyikang County on 12 April. Fighting is believed to have taken place between Wankur and Tonga with significant resistance from SPLA/iO units under the command of Johnson Olony. However, the SPLA were believed to have been building up forces in Unity state for some time for the purpose of carrying out this offensive suggesting they embarked with significant supplies and weaponry making their comparative advantage significant if not overwhelming. By 15 April, the SPLA claimed that they had taken Tonga from the SPLA/iO.
