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.
