Between 1 January and 30 April 2017, 5,190 unaccompanied and separated children arrived in Italy by sea, representing 14% of all sea arrivals in this period. This proportion is comparable to the first four months of 2016, when 16% of those arriving by sea were UASC. Their numbers, however, have increased compared to last year, when 4,541 UASC arrived in the first four months of the year.
