IOM Uganda monitors migration flows along the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) through six strategically located flow monitoring points (FMP) illustrated in the map. Over the course of two weeks from 7 to 21 December, a total of 11,971 move-ments were observed, with 59% entering Uganda and 41% exiting. 67% of the people de-clared to be Congolese nationals. The main reasons reported for cross-border move-ments are to undertake economic activities and to visit families. An increase of flows was observed in the third week of December from both directions at Uganda/DRC border.
The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is supported by the Better Migration Management (BMM) programme through the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The BMM Programme is a regional, multi-year, multi-partner project co-funded by the European Union Trust Fund for Africa, and the German Federal Ministpeory for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
