The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Libya’s Flow Monitoring exercise was launched in July 2016 to capture data on migration flows in the country by conducting daily assessments at Flow Monitoring locations and Flow Monitoring Surveys with migrants.

In 2017, DTM updated its data collection methodology for Flow Monitoring Point assessments to capture more detailed data on migrants at key entry, exit and transit points for migrants in Libya.

Flow Monitoring Statistical Reports present data on migrant flows in Libya. Data is gathered at key point where migrants gather and transit in Libya.

This report presents the results of 819 assessments conducted in the reporting period from 16 February to 15 April 2017.

Data was collected across 9 regions (Mantika), 18 municipalities (Baladiya), 45 Muhalla and 63 locations.

The majority of assessments were conducted in Tobruk (22%) and Almargeb (21%) as demonstrated in the below map.

This report presents data from DTM’s Flow Monitoring baseline assessments. Baseline assessments aim to identify the frequency and volume of migrants in, and crossing through a specific locations across Libya.

Baseline Assessments are carried out daily. To manage Libya’s security constraints, data is collected on a daily basis and quantified and reported on a weekly and semi-monthly basis.

This permits the DTM project the flexibility to gauge the quality of the data being collected on a daily basis, allows greater flexibility in identifying more locations within a Baladiya and allows a holistic articulation on the number of migrants in and transiting through Libya.
