COVID-19 Travel Restrictions Output — 6 April 2021

The current outbreak of COVID-19 has affected global mobility in the form of various travel disruptions and restrictions. To better understand how COVID-19 affects global mobility, DTM has developed a COVID-19 database mapping the different restrictions to provide a global overview. For this, DTM uses the IATA site as the primary source of restrictions with the information reported per country and territory, and to the country of application.

Data collected includes:

  1. Date of restriction 
  2. Country, territory or area of restriction
  3. Countries, territories or areas on which restrictions were imposed
  4. Type of restriction- total restriction, or conditional restriction – such as medical/ and or visa restriction

This DTM COVID-19 Travel Restrictions Output presents an analysis based on country imposing, the country being imposed upon, and the aggregation of the restriction type. The aim of the data analysis is to provide an overview of the COVID-19 outbreak on global mobility and to help identify and develop responses.

Senegal — Monitoring of Departure Areas — Movements to the Canary Islands (January — February 2021)

The Departure Area Monitoring Tool monitors events relating to migratory movements from the coasts of Senegal to the Spanish Canary Islands (which, most frequently, are conducted through several intermediate stages), with the aim of documenting mobility along the West African Atlantic Route (WAAR). The methodology combines three tools: monitoring of departures, mapping of departure areas and counting. This report presents data collected by the departure monitoring tool between 1 January and 28 February 2021 at key departure points along the Senegalese coastline. Information is provided to enumerators by Community Focal Points (CFPs) who provide information on notable events observed in areas of departure used by migrants to travel to Mauritania, Morocco and the Canary Islands.

Human Mobility in the context of the COVID-19 Pandemic 2020 ⁠–⁠ 2021

Since March 2020, when COVID-19 was declared as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, DTM has been capturing key information on human mobility. This summary combines information from DTM's three COVID-19 workstreams: the Global Mobility Database on Points of Entry, the COVID-19 Mobility Tracking Database on international air travel restrictions, and the impact on migrants. In addition to providing a combined overviews, it discusses advice and evidence on the implementation of travel-related control measures. With public health measures taking effect and COVID-19 vaccination programs being rolled out, this summary provides further insight on how data from DTM's work can support the evidence-based decision-making in the next phase of the COVID-19 and subsequent re-opening of borders.

Moçambique - Ciclone Tropical Eloise -Avaliação das Necessidades Multi-Sectoriais - Província de Sofala (March 2021)

A 23 de Janeiro de 2021, o Ciclone Tropical ELOISE colidiu no centro de Moçambique, perto da cidade da Beira. O ele trouxe consigo ventos fortes e chuvas, afectando as províncias de Manica, Sofala, e Zambézia (as esmas províncias afectadas pelo Ciclone Tropical Idai em 2019).

De 4 à 6 de Março de 2021, em estreita coordenação com o Instituto Nacional de Gestão de Desastres e Redução de Riscos (INGD) e a IOM DTM (Matriz de Monitoria de Deslocamentos), as equipas enumeradoras realizaram uma Avaliação de Necessidades Multi-Sectoriais (MSNA) a nível local. Foram produzidas formações, análises e processamento de dados através da DTM, apoiada pelo INGC. A avaliação abrangeu os distritos mais afectados da província de Sofala. As equipas de DTM entrevistaram Informadores-Chave (principalmente das autoridades locais), captando informações sobre reparações de abrigos, acesso a serviços, e necessidades urgentes.
