Since February 2016, IOM Niger has been carrying out flow monitoring of migrants at two points in Niger in the region of Agadez. This flow monitoring does not replace border monitoring nor does it claim to observe all migratory flows in the Agadez region.

Flow monitoring points (FMPs) are active in Séguédine and Arlit, two towns in the Agadez region. Flow monitoring points are placed at known migrant transit points along the Niger migratory route. The data collected provides a snapshot of migrant movements through the region.

Bamako, New-York, Paris - Presque deux ans après sa signature, l’Accord de paix du 20 juin 2015 est aujourd’hui fragilisé par la stratégie des groupes armés djihadistes, qui s’activent à étendre le conflit du Nord Mali vers les régions du centre et les pays limitrophes. La recrudescence de l’insécurité y entraîne désengagement de l’État, violences intercommunautaires, et exactions de l’armée malienne et des groupes armés, fournissant un terreau idéal à l’extension des groupes terroristes.
