New report from IOM: Impact of COVID-19 Movement Restrictions on Migrants along the Eastern Corridor

The COVID-19 outbreak has restricted global mobility, whilst heightening the risk of exploitation of vulnerable populations. A new report from IOM provides a snapshot of the COVID-19 epidemiological situation and mobility restrictions, and of the current migration trends along the Eastern Corridor migration route, in addition to an analysis of the impact that movement restrictions have had in Ethiopia as well as Djibouti, Somalia, and Yemen. Moreover, it provides information on the main protection concerns for migrants and assistance provided and COVID-19 risk mitigation measures. This report utilizes data collected through IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs), Migration Response Centres (MRCs), Assisted Voluntary Return (AVR) data, as well as anecdotal information provided by IOM team members working in the region.
