Event Tracking

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.

Nigeria — North Central & North West Flash Report #46 (29 March - 04 April 2021)

Nigeria's North Central and North West Zones are afflicted with a multidimensional crisis that is rooted in long-standing tensions between ethnic and religious groups and involves attacks by criminal groups and banditry/hirabah (such as kidnapping and grand larceny along major highways). The crisis has accelerated during the past years because of the intensification of attacks and has resulted in widespread displacement across the region.
 
Between 29 March and 04 April, armed clashes between herdsmen and farmers, bandits and local communities have led to a new wave of population displacement. Following these events, a rapid assessment was conducted by DTM (Displacement Tracking Matrix) field staff with the purpose of informing the humanitarian community and government partners, and enable targeted response. Flash reports utilise direct observation and a broad network of key informants to gather representative data and collect information on the number, profile and immediate needs of affected populations.
 
Latest attacks affected 1,175 individuals, including 16 injuries and 22 fataliies in Safana LGA of Katsina State and the LGAs Apa and Logo in Benue State. The attacks caused people to flee to neighbouring localities.

Sénégal — Monitoring des lieux de départ — Mouvements vers les Îles Canaries (Janvier — Février 2021)

L'Outil de suivi des zones de départ surveille les événements liés aux mouvements migratoires des côtes du Sénégal vers les îles Canaries espagnols (qui, le plus souvent, se déroulent à travers plusieurs étapes intermédiaires), dans le but de documenter la mobilité le long de la route atlantique ouest-africaine (WAAR). Ce rapport présente les données collectées par l'outil de suivi des départs entre le 1er janvier et le 28 février 2021 aux principaux points de départ le long du littoral sénégalais. Les informations sont fournies aux agents recenseurs par les Points Focaux Communautaires (PFC) qui fournissent des informations sur les événements notables observés dans les zones de départ utilisées par les migrants pour se rendre en Mauritanie, au Maroc et aux îles Canaries.

Mozambique – Tropical Cyclone Eloise Multi-Sectorial Needs Assessment - Sofala Province (March 2021)

On the 23 January 2021, Tropical Cyclone ELOISE made landfall in central Mozambique, near Beira city. The cyclone brought heavy winds and rains, affecting the provinces of Manica, Sofala, and Zambezia (the same provinces affected by Tropical Cyclone Idai in 2019). It also caused widespread flooding and destruction of infrastructure.

From 4 — 6 March 2021, in close coordination with Mozambique’s National Institute for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction (INGD) and IOM DTM (Displacement Tracking Matrix), enumerator teams conducted a Multi-Sectoral Needs Assessment (MSNA) at the locality level. Training, data analysis and data processing were produced through DTM, supported by INGD. The assessment covered the most affected districts in Sofala province. DTM teams interviewed Key Informants (mainly from local authorities), capturing information on shelter repairs, access to services, and urgent needs.
