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.​

Djibouti — Présence des migrants bloqués (Au 15 Octobre 2020)

Suite à la fermeture des frontières en Ethiopie et aux renforcements des contrôles frontaliers au Yémen, certains des migrants qui transitaient par Djibouti en partance ou de retour de la Péninsule Arabique se sont retrouvés bloqués à Djibouti. Ces migrants vivent dans différents sites installés le long du corridor migratoire.

La Matrice de suivi des déplacements (Displacement Tracking Matrix – DTM), à travers ses équipes d’énumérateurs déployés sur le terrain collecte quotidiennement des données concernant les sites de migrants dans tout le pays.

La totalité de ces migrants sont Ethiopiens.

Djibouti — Stranded Migrants (As of 15 October 2020)

Following the border closure in Ethiopia and due to the stricter border management policies in Yemen, some of the migrants who were transiting through Djibouti on their way to or from the Arabian Peninsula found themselves stranded in the country. These migrants live in spontaneous sites located along the migration corridor.

The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), through its field enumerator teams and key informants, collects data on a daily basis at migrant sites across the country.

All reported migrants are Ethiopian nationals.

COVID-19 Impact on Points of Entry : Six Month Review of Changes in Operational Status (October 2020)

The current COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on mobility across the globe. Containment measures have affected both international mobility and internal movements within national borders. To better understand how COVID-19 affects global mobility, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has developed a Points of Entry Global Reference database to gather, map and track data on the restrictive measures impacting movement through international Points of Entry (PoE) and Key Locations of Internal Mobility (KLIM), which can be found, in additionto the methodology, on the IOM migration portal.
 
This data collection system has been regularly adapted to reflect the dynamic and rapidly changing mobility landscape resulting from COVID-19 containment measures. As such, the database is able to capture the varied stages of measures issued at different times by countries, territories or areas. Regular bi-weekly reports are produced to highlight changes captured in the database. With six months of data available for analysis, this report aims to assess the state of the operational status of PoEs in April compared to September/early October 2020. Please note that data presented for October is updated as of 7th October 2020.
 
The General Overview presents a comparison in the variation of operational status between April and October, and the regional comparison highlights differences in operational status trends according to IOM geographic regions. ​The map shows the spatial coverage of the PoEs worldwide assessed by IOM in the October update.

IOM COVID-19 Impact On Key Locations Of Internal Mobility Bi-Weekly Analysis 21 October 2020

IOM COVID-19 Impact on Key Locations of Internal Mobility Bi-Weekly Analysis is meant to serve IOM Member States, IOM, UN and voluntary partner agencies, the civil society (including media) as well as the general population in analysing the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on different key locations impacting internal mobility. It is particularly relevant when identifying and addressing specific needs faced by migrants and mobile populations, disproportionately affected by the global mobility restrictions. 

The report is based on information provided by IOM field staff, using resources available at the IOM country office level and is accurate to the best of IOM’s knowledge at the time of compilation. All information is being constantly validated, including the geo-location and attributes, and through regular assessments and triangulation of information. The updates depend on the time frame within which the information becomes available and is processed by IOM. For this reason, the analysis is always dated and timestamped in order to reflect the reality at a given time. However, as the situation continuously evolves and changes, despite IOM’s best efforts, the analysis may not always accurately reflect the multiple and simultaneous restrictive measures being imposed at a specific location.

Mozambique — Cyclone Idai and Floods Displacement Report 16 (22 - 24 September 2020)

From 22 to 24  September 2020, in close coordination with Mozambique’s National Institute for Disaster Management (INGC), IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) teams conducted multi-sectoral location assessments (MSLA) in resettlement sites hosting internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the four provinces affected by Cyclone Idai (March 2019) and floods (between December 2019 and February 2020). The DTM teams interviewed key informants, capturing population estimates, mobility patterns, and multi-sectoral needs and vulnerabilities.

Mozambique – COVID-19 Preparedness Assessment in Resettlement Sites Report 11 (September 2020)

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in collaboration with the Government of Mozambique’s National Disaster Management Agency (INGC) conducted an assessment in the resettlement sites from 22 to 24 September 2020, with the sole purpose to inform government and humanitarian partners on preparedness levels and precautionary measures currently available in resettlement sites hosting populations displaced by Cyclone Idai. The information gathered is intended to help partners plan interventions. This information will further allow partners to identify recommended health and site preparation measures to prevent and contain an outbreak in the resettlement sites in the central region.

In the past month, among the 73 resettlement sites assessed, two sites (Mdhala and Muconja in Sofala province) reported the arrival of nine Mozambican migrant workers returning from South Africa.  All sites reported a noticeable change in people’s behaviours and habits to better prevent COVID-19.
