Irregular migration is a complex, dynamic and fragmented phenomenon, and remains difficult to fully picture. Strengthening the understanding of migration routes, trends as well as migrant profiles is critical to protect migrants and support evidence-based policies. The International Organization for Migration's Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) and Missing Migrants Project (MMP) collect data on the departures, arrivals, deaths and disappearances of migrants along migratory routes.

This document presents the resumption of migration from the coasts of West Africa to the Canary Islands (Spain). This route, already active in 2006, saw an increasing number of movements in 2023. The risks, deaths and disappearances following shipwrecks are also on the rise along the Atlantic coasts.

Between January and December 2023, 39,910 migrants reached the Canary Islands irregularly after crossing by boat from the coasts of West Africa, an increase of 155 per cent compared to 2022 (15,682 migrants).

Nevertheless, risks and dangers along the West African Atlantic route remain and 47 shipwrecks were recorded along this route in 2023, resulting in the death or disappearance of 958 migrants.

Data on the West Africa Atlantic route remain scarce and incomplete. There is currently no harmonized approach to data collection except on arrival in the Canary Islands. Additional data is collected by IOM on arrivals profiles and intercepted vessels. There is very little data on the actual number of departures and attempts from West African coasts, while shipwrecks are often not reported.

Baseline 2, an area-based assessment, is the second step of Mobility Tracking implemented at settlement level and aims to quantify presence of population categories.

As of January 2024, DTM Somalia has mapped around 3,451,434 IDPs, 155,710 returnees and 9,052,583 residents across 17 regions and 10,999 assessed locations. IDPs were present in 45 per cent of locations assessed (4,611 locations) and returnees were present in eleven per cent of assessed locations (1,204 locations)

The results include regions of origins, reasons for displacement and accessibility information, as well as the Operational Zones (OPZ) established by OCHA. These zones are designed to support sub-district response and reporting efforts.

Overview

From 15 April 2023, armed clashes erupted between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) in multiple cities across Sudan. Clashes initially took place in cities across Northern and Khartoum states, later spreading across the Darfur and Kordofan regions.

Highlights

  • DTM Sudan estimates that 6,270,676 Individuals (1,249,695 Households) were recently internally displaced.
  • The IDP caseload was observed in 6,771 locations across all of Sudan’s 18 states. 
  • The highest proportions of IDPs were observed across South Darfur (12%), River Nile (11%), East Darfur (11%), White Nile (8%), North Darfur (7%), Sennar (7%), Central Darfur (7%), Gedaref (6%), Northern (6%), and Aj Jazirah (6%).
  • Field teams reported that the IDPs were originally displaced from twelve states. As reported, 57% per cent of IDPs were displaced from Khartoum state (3,545,909 IDPs), followed by South Darfur (15%), North Darfur (8%), Aj Jazirah (7%), Central Darfur (5%), West Darfur (4%), East Darfur (1%), and South Kordofan (1%). 
  • IOM-DTM also reported that an estimated 1,870,422 mixed cross-border movements were made into neighbouring countries.
  • This product provides brief insights into those displaced in Sudan post-15 April 2023. For more granular information on the IDP caseload and the displacement context, please see IOM-DTM's Monthly Displacement Overview (05).

The inflow of remittances is one of the main driving forces in Bangladesh’s economic growth and development (IOM, 2021b). Remittances support the economy by increasing foreign exchange reserves and national savings and reducing poverty levels (Chowdhury and Chakraborty, 2021). During the COVID-19 global pandemic in 2020, there was decrease in overseas Bangladeshi migrant workers and the inflow of remittances to the country was initially predicted to decline significantly in 2020 (Asia Development Bank, 2020; World Bank, 2020a). However, contrary to all negative forecasts, recorded remittance inflows to Bangladesh remained resilient during 2020 (IOM, 2021a; IOM, 2022). Nevertheless, even though the emigration of migrants increased again in 2021 and in 2022, the inflow of remittances to Bangladesh started to decline. The World Bank’s prognosis for 2023 expects a further drop in remittances to South Asian countries (World Bank, 2023). This snapshot aims to provide an overview of the remittance situation in Bangladesh between 2019 and 2022.

On 12 January 2024, a non-state armed group (NSAG) carried out attacks in Turmi/Maluri and Dogo Nini wards in Fika and Potiskum LGAs of Yobe State, leading to the displacement of a large number of the affected population. As a result of the attack, a total of 2,866 individuals from 510 households were displaced from their homes forcing them to seek refuge in nearby communities or makeshift shelters. There were four casualties and 43 injuries reported as a result of the attacks.

Według stanu na grudzień 2023 r. ponad 6 mln uchodźców z Ukrainy uciekło do innych krajów z powodu wojny, która rozpoczęła się w lutym 2022 r. Ponad 950 000 z tych uchodźców żyje w Polsce. W obliczu nagłego napływu uchodźców polskie społeczeństwo i instytucje szybko zareagowały, aby wesprzeć nowo przybyłych Ukraińców, wprowadzając programy ochrony socjalnej, zbiorowe budownictwo mieszkaniowe oraz udzielając natychmiastowej pomocy osobom przekraczającym granicę z Ukrainą. Polskie organy ścigania — w tym polska straż graniczna, Policja i Straż Miejska — odegrały kluczową rolę we wspieraniu ukraińskich uchodźców. Ponieważ konflikt trwa i wielu uchodźców mieszka w Polsce od ponad roku, istnieje potrzeba prowadzenia badań i programów w zakresie różnych aspektów umożliwiających trwałe rozwiązania — jednym z nich jest sposób, w jaki ukraińscy uchodźcy wchodzą w interakcje z polskim prawem i postrzegają polskie organy ścigania. Znaczna populacja Ukraińców żyła w Polsce jeszcze przed wybuchem wojny, co oznacza, że interakcje polskich funkcjonariuszy organów ścigania z Ukraińcami i ich spostrzeżenia mogą dotyczyć zarówno uchodźców, którzy przybyli po, jak i migrantów, którzy przybyli przed lutym 2022 r. Z punktu widzenia organów ścigania rozróżnienie, czy dana osoba jest uchodźcą, może być trudne, dlatego badamy również spostrzeżenia i doświadczenia ukraińskich migrantów, którzy mieszkali w Polsce przed wybuchem wojny (tj. tych, którzy żyli w Polsce przed lutym 2022 r.). Celem badania jest przedstawienie wglądu w interakcje, spostrzeżenia i potencjalne obszary wymagające poprawy w stosunkach pomiędzy Ukraińcami w Polsce (ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem populacji uchodźców) a polskimi organami ścigania (ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem polskiej Straży Miejskiej). W raporcie zawarto główne wnioski z badań IOM, a także zalecenia dotyczące zarówno współpracy polskich organów ścigania ze społecznościami ukraińskimi, jak i przyszłych programów pomocy humanitarnej.
