In 2016, the number of migrants crossing the Mediterranean remained high, with a 123 per cent overall increase in the number of people arrested while trying to cross borders irregularly in the North, South, West and Sinai. In 2017, the trends changed dramatically. As almost all irregular migration from the North Coast towards the Mediterranean ceased, the number of migrants arrested on the border with Libya, surpassed the whole of 2016 by 131%, within six months. This shift in migrant flows indicates that migrants are compelled to expose themselves to risks in complex environments such as Libya. This leaves migrants in Egypt facing an ever-increasing conundrum: difficult to achieve local integration, or attempting to cross the Mediterranean from Libya facing violence and a perilous boat travel.

In 2017, IOM Egypt provided over 1,800 NFIs to migrants in government holding facilities, assisted over 2,900 people with localised Direct Assistance and supported over 380 migrants to return voluntarily to their 21 countries of origin, with reintegration grants available to promote a more secure future. In doing so, IOM Egypt is providing sustainable alternatives to irregular migration. Furthermore, from October 2016 to March 2017, within the framework of the Regional Refugee Response Action Plan (3RP), IOM provided support through livelihood opportunities, health and psychosocial assistance, and other services to Syrian refugees and host communities in Egypt. The support will be continued throughout the first quarter of 2018.

At the governmental level, IOM Egypt has a strong cooperation with the National Committee for Preventing Irregular Migration and Trafficking in Persons (NCCPIM & TiP). Concurrently, IOM Egypt continues to contribute to the development of the child protection response from the National Committee for Childhood and Motherhood (NCCM) in an effort to securing effective protection mechanisms for Unaccompanied Migrant Children (UMC) and Egyptian youth at risk of irregular migration.

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 3,800 individuals, including 1,000 migrants in government holding facilities, localised vulnerable migrants, returning migrants
