Central Med Info September 2023

Since January 2021, we regularly share parts of our collected data from the Central Mediterranean (Central Med) with the public at the end of each month. These contain all the information available to us on arrivals, rescues and push & pullbacks in the Central Med, thus providing a civilian observation to counter the figures of the Italian Ministry of Interior and the UN. In various statistics and tables we collect and process all information available to us through various channels and networks. In addition to arrival & departure points, nationalities, age and gender, we record any characteristics that may allow tracing individuals or groups. These clues can, for example, help families in their search for their loved ones. The figures are based on our research and are to be read without guarantee. Further information and a legend to the categories used can be found here. Since March 2022, our Central Med Info, as part of a collaboration with the sea rescue organization Mediterranea Saving Humans, also appears in Italian and English in the Med Report of the organization. The September publication can be found here.
