- Flow Monitoring
IOM works with national and local authorities in order to gain a better understanding of population movements throughout Southern Africa. Through the setup of Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs), IOM seeks to quantify migration flows, trends and routes and to gain a better understanding of the profiles of observed individuals at entry, transit or exit points (such as border crossing posts, bus stations, rest areas, police checkpoints and reception centres). This report is an overview of the data collected in these Lesotho FMPs from 1 March 2021 to 30 June 2021.
•Mafeteng (Lesotho)– South Africa
•Mohaleshoek (Lesotho)– South Africa
•Quthing (Lesotho) – South Africa
•Qacha (Lesotho) – South Africa
From 1 March to 30 June 2021, a total of 23,179 movements were observed across 12 FMPs in Lesotho. The Lesotho-South Africa (Mafeteng Paqama) corridor hosted the largest number of individuals (5,793). The majority of migrants were Basotho - 21,579 (93%). This was followed by the South Africans, with 558 individuals (2%).
