West and Central Africa — Liptako Gourma Crisis Monthly Dashboard 10 (October 2020)

The Central Sahel area, and in particular the Liptako Gourma region, which borders Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger, is affected by a complex crisis involving growing competition over dwindling resources; climatic variability; demographic pressure; high levels of poverty; disaffection and a lack of livelihood opportunities; communal tensions; the absence of state institutions and basic services; and violence related to organized crime and Non-State Armed Groups. The crisis has led to the death of an estimated 5,000 people in 2020 (as of 31 August) and triggered significant displacement of populations in the four affected countries. As of 20 October 2020, 1,617,132 individuals have been displaced, including 1,448,659 Internally Displaced Persons (90% of the displaced population) and 168,473 Refugees (10% of the displaced population).

Mauritanie — COVID-19 : Rapport sur les restrictions de mobilité (Octobre 2020)

La pandémie de COVID-19 a eu des conséquences majeures sur la mobilité dans le monde. Au delà des fortes perturbations de la mobilité, de nombreux gouvernements ont imposé des mesures préventives, souvent restrictives, limitant les mouvements de personnes dans le but d'endiguer la propagation du virus. Ainsi, dès le 15 mars 2020 le gouvernement de
la république islamique de Mauritanie a progressivement mis en place des mesures limitant les déplacements dans le pays pour contenir la propagation de l’épidémie dans le pays. Ces mesures ont été graduellement allégées ou levées à partir du 10 juillet 2020. Afin de mieux comprendre comment ces restrictions et leur allègement subséquent affectent la mobilité dans le pays, le pilier thématique du Système des Nations Unies sur les points d’entrée a développé un outil de collecte de données permettant de cartographier l'emplacement des principaux points d'entrée dans le pays, de recueillir des données sur leur statut opérationnel et d'identifier les mesures et restrictions imposées à ces points. Cet outil utilise la méthodologie DTM de l’Organisation internationale pour les migrations. Les évaluations ont pour but d'aider les autorités nationales, les agences des Nations Unies, les organisations et autres parties prenantes clés à identifier et à développer des interventions adéquates de préparation et de réponse à la pandémie au niveau des PdE. Ce rapport quadrimestriel présente des informations sur le statut opérationnel, les mobilités transfrontalières et les mesures préventives mises en place dans 28 PdE à travers le pays.
