IOM West and Central Africa - Latest Updates / Read Previous Editions Here
December, 2 2019
In today’s Digest, spotlight on the tenth edition of the World Migration Report, IOM's flagship publication providing a summary of migration trends worldwide. In Nigeria returned migrants use theatre to raise awareness of the risks and dangers of irregular migration among peers. In Niger, changing routes and increased attention by the Government and international organizations cause a downturn in the human smuggling industry. At the launch fo the World Migration Report 2020, IOM Director General Antonio Vittorino reminds us of the key role played by climate change in driving migrations in Africa. In Côte d'Ivoire, a migrant shares his thrilling ordeal through the Mediterranean Sea. Also in this edition, IOM organizes tomorrow a symposium including a photo exhibition and live painting performance in collaboration with the Dak’Art (Dakar Biennale) to share migration trends in West Africa, including the upsurge of migrants taking the western route from Senegal. Finally, the focus in today's digest is on Burkina Faso with two stories of migrants, Bassirou and Bara, who prove that although it is not evident, returning home can be a winning bet.
The World Migration Report 2020 is now available.
