In order to better understand migration movements and trends in West and Central Africa, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), through the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), implements the Population Flow Monitoring (FM) activity. Flow monitoring, which is implemented in close collaboration with the authorities and national and local partners, is made up of two tools: the Flow Monitoring Registry (FMR), which collects key data on the extent, origin, destination and modalities of mobility flows. In addition, individual surveys (Flow Monitoring Survey (FMS) in English), conducted with travelers to obtain information on profiles, migratory routes, and the intentions of migrants. The monitoring of population flows thus collects data on migratory flows and trends, traveler profiles, routes and intentions of migrants, in order to provide a better understanding of mobility in West and Central Africa.
In Niger, the DTM collects data at seven Flow Monitoring Points (FMP) in order to identify areas with high cross-border and intra-regional mobility, and collect data on trends of mobility, the profiles and journeys of travelers in the country.
This report presents the data obtained through FMR and FMS activities from January to March 2022, at the level of the seven FMPs installed in Niger.
