In September, a total of 26,212 movements were observed at Flow Monitoring Points. This represents a significant decrease in comparison with August when 34,219 movements were observed; this decrease is attributed to the closure of five FMPs due to budgetary constraints as well as the decrease of movements in Bossasso and, to a lesser extent, Buuhoodle. The great majority of flows identified (68%) were incoming against 32% outgoing, reaching levels comparable to July 2018.
The month of June saw a significant increase in the number of migrants identified, with a total of 42,074 (compared to 31,662 individuals recorded in May 2018). Unlike previous months, movements recorded in June 2018 were mostly outflows, meaning individuals exiting Somalia (80%). Movements for the month of June 2018 were mainly seasonal (26%) or caused by natural disasters (26%). Bossaso port saw a significant increase of arrivals from Yemen, from 573 individuals in May 2018 to 1,163 for this month.
In May, a total of 31,464 individuals were recorded in border crossing points monitored by the DTM. This represents a slight increase in comparison with April 2018. The ratio of inflows and outflows remained relatively stable, with 63% of flows entering Somalia and 37% exiting Somalia. This month saw a significant increase of movements from Ethiopia to Somaliland, through the Harirad border point (4,083) along the Ethiopian border. Significant movements through the Lowyacado point (4,348) along the Djibouti border were also recorded.
In March, a total of 30,198 individuals were recorded in border crossing points monitored by the DTM. This represents a slight decrease in comparison with March 2018. The percentage of inflows in comparison of outflows has continuously increased since January 2018, reaching 65% of inflows and 35% of outflows for this month. Most movements have been recorded in Lower Juba region and northern Somalia (especially Buuhoodle border crossing point).
In March, a total of 33,525 individuals were recorded in border crossing points monitored by the DTM. While this represents a significant increase in the number of migrants identified in comparison with February 2018, this change is attributed to increased coverage of the DTM and improved methodology. Main movements were recorded in Lower Juba region. Dhobley (Lower Juba) border point recorded the highest number of exits while Buuhoodle (Togdheer) recorded the highest number of entries. 58% of all movements identified were inflows, while 42% were outflows.
In February, a total of 14,025 individuals were recorded in border crossing points, mainly in Lower Juba region. Dhobley border point had the highest number of entries (1,755 persons) and exits (2,155). 55% of all movements identified were inflows, while 45% were outflows. Countries of departure of inflows were mainly Kenya (68%), Ethiopia (18%), Djibouti (11%), and Yemen (3%). Countries of destination of outflows were mainly Kenya (75%), Ethiopia (15%), and Uganda (4%).
