This Quarterly Mixed Migration Update (QMMU) covers the West Africa (WA) region. The core countries
of focus for this region are Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso and Nigeria. Depending on the quarterly trends and
migration-related updates, more attention may be given to any of the countries over the rest.
The QMMUs offer a quarterly update on new trends and dynamics related to mixed migration and relevant
policy developments in the region. These updates are based on a compilation of a wide range of secondary
(data) sources, brought together within a regional framework and applying a mixed migration analytical
lens. Similar QMMUs are available for all MMC regions.
