Mauritania hosts over 2,000 urban refugees and asylum seekers and almost 52,000 Malian refugees in Mbera, a camp established in 2012, in the arid south-east region close to the Malian border.

Despite the conclusion of a peace agreement in 2015, largescale returns of Malian refugees are not expected due to persistent violence in northern Mali. Last month alone, 168 new arrivals were registered in Mbera camp.

The protracted displacement situation in Mbera exercises a considerable pressure on already limited local resources in the Bassikounou region.

Overview

Between 1 January and 31 July 2017, 95,213 persons arrived in Italy by sea. This is a 2% increase compared to sea arrivals in the same period last year (93,774).

Geopolitical developments and the capacity of smugglers to organize departures may also affect sea arrivals.
