Chad — Emergency Tracking Tool Report — Profiles of displaced persons housed on the Tradex site following floods in N'Djamena (12 October 2020)

The objective of DTM’s (Displacement Tracking Matrix) Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements. Following floods which have been ongoing since the end of July 2020 in N’Djamena, more than 5,000 households were forced to flee their homes. They took refuge either elsewhere in their arrondissement, or in neighbouring arrondissements. In order to host the households who were left without shelter, Chadian authorities and the humanitarian community identified the Tradex site, located in the 9th arrondissement, where 98 households (562 individuals) are currently settled. 

The data presented in this report was collected through the registration of households, conducted on 12 October 2020 by IOM staff and the local authorities of the 9th arrondissement, in order to facilitate the provision of humanitarian assistance. This report aims to provide information on the demographic profiles of these displaced persons, as well as an overview of their needs.

Lao PDR — Returning Migrants Survey flash update #2 (June to September 2020)

This report highlights the impact of COVID-19 on returning Lao migrants. The wave of returning migrants is likely to alter the local economic landscape, as more than 50 per cent of surveyed returning migrants indicated they have no plans to leave Lao People’s Democratic Republic for work again or are not sure of their plans. About 36 per cent were willing to upskill for better opportunities.

Mali — Rapport de Recherche — La "Fièvre De l'Or" Au Mali: Analyse Des Profils Et Dynamiques Migratoires (Décembre 2019)

Cette recherche s’inscrit dans le programme « Sécurité Support et Solutions le long de la Route de la Méditerranée Centrale » financé par le Royaume-Uni à travers le département du développement international (DFID), dont l’un des objectifs est d’améliorer la compréhension des gouvernements, des agences humanitaires et des organisations nationales sur les tendances migratoires afin notamment de formuler des réponses adaptées pour les populations vulnérables. La recherche vise à déterminer le profil migratoire des orpailleurs, les parcours jusqu’aux sites miniers, les modes de prise de décision, ainsi qu’à identifier les systèmes de mobilité soutenant la « fièvre de l’or ». Un autre objectif concerne  l’évaluation des défis liés à la protection des personnes vulnérables autour des sites d’orpaillage. La collecte des données a eu lieu entre mars et mai 2019 dans les cercles de Sadiola et Kéniéba dans la région de Kayes, et dans les cercles de Kadiolo et Yanfolia dans la région de Sikasso.​

Chad — Emergency Tracking Tool Report 81 (18 October 2020)

The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements. Information is collected through key informant interviews or direct observation. This dashboard presents information on a movement which took place on 18 October 2020 in the town of Faya, located in Borkou Province. This movement was observed at the DTM Flow Monitoring Point (FMP) located in Faya. 

Following the closure of all the gold mines in the town of Miski (Tibesti Province), 101 gold miners (all men), who were forced to leave the area by order of the authorities, arrived in Faya (Borkou Province) on 18 October 2020. Almost all of them are Chadian nationals, and most are from Eastern Chad (mainly the cities of Abéché and Adré). These flows are very likely to continue in the coming weeks. They could involve over 10,000 individuals.
