East Africa and the Horn of Africa — Quarterly Regional Report 1 (June — August 2017)
IOM's Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) has established date collection activities in areas of significant migratory transit and displacement in the Horn of Africa and in the Arab Peninsula. Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) were established to collect data in order to provide a better understanding of intra- and inter-regional migration patterns. Additionally, IOM established a network of Migration Response Centers (MRCs) along irregular migration corridors in Ethiopia, Djibouti, Somaliland and Puntland while supporting similar initiatives in Sudan and Yemen, the purpose of which are to assist stranded migrants and to build the capacity of government to respond to the challenges of mixed migration, while providing insights into migrants' intentions and needs. This report provides details for ongoing data collection activities for the period between June - August 2017 as well as principal figures and trends of migration on the region.
