The IOM delivers Mobile Border Post to Niger
Based on Nigerien Police needs in Northern Niger (vast desert area), the International Organization of Migration (IOM) decided to develop a new version of mobile border post (already developed in 2012 in Kenya) with adapted specificities for Niger. It was entirely designed and conceptualized by IOM.
The Mobile Border Post (MBP) is based on a 6x4 Kamaz truck which has excellent off road capability and so can easily navigate poor roads and desert terrain. The truck is equipped with two offices and all the necessary IT equipment as well a Ku Band VSAT Antenna, air conditioning, water tank and rolling tent. 
In terms of energy, it has a wind turbine on the side which can be manually deployed and solar panels on the roof, as well as a generator in case both wind and solar energy are not enough.
The MBP can be used for classic border control (it will be equipped with MIDAS system), but also as a backup for existing border post in case of a sudden increase of flows, or a temporary registration tool for humanitarian border management purpose. Ideally, it comes with 1 pick-up and 2 motorbikes to become a Mobile Border Unit (MBU). The work was completed by futurvida in Portugal and was delivered on the 25th October. The truck was funded by the Government of Canada (CTCBP).
