Niger — Flow Monitoring Report (October 2017)

Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) allow IOM to quantify and qualify migration flows, trends and routes et entry, transit or exit points. IOM has been carrying out flow monitoring of migrants at two points in the Agadez region of Niger. Moreover, As the routes used by migrants have increasingly disrupted become more fragmented due to increased security controls in the region of Agadez, IOM has set up additional migration information collection points in the region of Agadez with the aim of gathering qualitative and quantitative information on the multidimensionality of migration and the fragmentation of migratory routes. In October 2017 DTM identified 3,592 incoming and 4,863 outgoing migrants. The great majority (95%) of observed persons were men. The most represented nationalities of observed migrants were Niger, Mali, Guinea, Cameroon and Nigeria.

Niger — Flow Monitoring Report (September 2017)

Niger — Flow Monitoring Report (May 2017)

There was a slight increase in the number of migrants observed entering the flow monitoring points during this period. A slight increase was also observed from the data collected in February 2017 (see table on observed flows at the flow monitoring points below). The month of May was also marked by several incidents of migrants found stranded or having broken down in the desert in the region surrounding Séguédine and Dirkou. The movements in the area continue therefore to be observed.
