Between 1 January and 30 April 2018, 1,731 children arrived in Italy by sea, including 1,439 unaccompanied and separated children (UASC). The numbers of UASC arrivals this year so far have considerably decreased compared to the same period last year, when 5,190 UASC reached Italian shores. However, their proportion among sea arrivals (15%) remains comparable to the first four months of 2017.
DTM flow monitoring data compiled from national authorities and IOM offices show that the number of arrivals through Mediterranean routes between January and March 2018 is half the number of arrivals in the same period in 2017. In the first quarter of 2018 a total of 1,956 migrants and asylum seekers arrived in Europe using different land and sea routes, in comparison to 34,531 registered in the first quarter of 2017. As previously reported, the decrease is mainly due to the drop in arrivals in Italy.
