This report presents Flow Monitoring Registry data collected in September 2020 it presents key data on flows, routes, provenance, destination and demographic profiles of travellers observed at the FMPs.
Mobility trends: Over the course of the reporting period, 1,351 individuals were observed at FMPs daily, on average. This represents an 11 per cent increase when compared to the previous month, during which 1,220 individuals had been observed daily. This trend may be explained by the fact that the rainy season (during which heavy rainfalls and flooding made it more difficult to travel) is coming to an end leading to increased travel.
Types of flows: All observed travellers were conducting a trans-boundary movement (29% were entering the country, while 71% were leaving the country), similarly to the previous month.
