This dashboard analyses and represent information based on IOM data and reports by UNCTAD 2018, UNODC 2018 and ISS 2017, regarding the cost of the journey facilitated by smuggling networks from the Horn of Africa. Costs were available for movements related to 6 countries - Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Yemen and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia -, and for 2 Routes: Northern and Eastern Route.
Affording the Journey
An estimated 500,000 Ethiopians were present in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) once the amnesty period for the irregular migrants expired in March, 2017. The Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (GoKSA) had previously the deadline several times.

With policymakers under growing public pressure to manage unwanted migration, questions of how, when, and under what conditions unauthorized immigrants, rejected asylum seekers, and other migrants can be returned to their origin countries received increased attention at international levels in 2018.
Regional Flow Monitoring Network
124 FMPs are currently active in three countries in the region.
As of the last report (July and August 2018) IOM identified at least 669,176 migrants currently in Libya. Migrants were identified in 100 municipalities, within 554 communities originating from more than 41 countries [primarily from Niger (19%), Egypt (14%) and Chad (14%)]. Information on current migration flows was collected through 1,897 assessments. Migrants were primarily located in Tripoli (22%), Misrata (12%) and Ejdabia (10%).
A total of 435 migrants were registered at MRCs across the region in October. The largest number of migrants was registered in Bosasso (134), followed by Hargeisa (130), Obock (92), Metema (59) and Semera (20). Almost a quarter of all registrations were children. The largest number of children were registered in Hargeisa (58) and Obock (24). While all 58 minors in Hargeisa were accompanied, 75% of minors in Obock were unaccompanied (18). Moreover, all registered minors in Semera (4) and Metema (10) and half of the registered minors in Bosasso (4) were unaccompanied.
IOM estimates that above 220,000 individuals were returned to Ethiopia during the reporting period, out of which 176,426* were registered since April, 2017. Since May, 2017, it is estimated that 170,602 (16% voluntary returnees and 84% forced returnees) were registered and profiled upon arrival;
67% of reported migrants were adult and male, returning to Ethiopia involuntarily; 61% of migrants (above 6 years old) had primary level education, and approximately 26% had less than the primary level;
L'OIM travaille en collaboration avec le Gouvernement de Djibouti afin de mieux comprendre les dynamiques migratoires dans le pays ainsi que le profil des migrants qui transitent dans le pays. Pour ce faire, l’OIM met en œuvre le suivi des flux de population, activité qui consiste à collecter des données dans les localités par lesquelles transitent les migrants. Les données présentées dans ce rapport mensuel donnent un aperçu des mouvements et des profils de populations en Septembre 2018.
