The Mixed Migration Monitoring Mechanism Initiative is an innovative, low-cost approach to collect and analyse data on mixed migration flows within and beyond the Horn of Africa. A network of locally-recruited monitors in migration hubs in Africa and Europe collect primary data among migrants, smugglers and observers. The website presents 4Mi data through interactive maps and infographics and is updated on a monthly basis.
