In October 2023, a total of 40,370 movements were observed across the six flow monitoring points (FMPs) in Ethiopia. This represents a 4% increase in daily average movements in comparison with September 2023 when an average of 1,258 movements per day were observed.

Outgoing movements (76%) during October increased while incoming movements (24%) decreased compared to the previous month, mainly due to decreased incoming flows from neighboring Sudan through the Metema and Kurmuk entry points.
