As of February 2016, IOM Niger has been carrying out flow monitoring of migrants at two points in Niger in the region of Agadez. This flow monitoring does not replace border monitoring nor does it claim to observe all migratory flows in the Agadez region. Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) are active in Séguédine and Arlit, two towns in the Agadez region. FMPs are placed at known migrant points along the Niger migratory route. The data collected provides a snapshot of migrant movements through the region.
