Community Response Map Niger collected feedback from migrants in transit as part of the ‘Supporting Informed Migrations in Niger’ project. This feedback collected by migrants in transit centres from Dec 2014 to June 2016 gave insight on countries of origin, intended countries of destination, reason for migrating among other key information. The geostrategic situation and porosity of Nigerien borders attracts migrants and has turned Niger into the most-travelled route for West and Central Africans. All routes pass through Agadez, the largest city in central Niger that lies in the Sahara and which has become a main regional hub for migrants.
