DTM Ethiopia Site Assessment Round 24
Through Site Assessment (SA), a total of 1.96 million IDPs were identified in 1,222 sites across 11 regions in Ethiopia. Conflict displaced an estimate of 1.2 million IDPs, followed by drought which displaced 331,963 IDPs and seasonal floods which displaced 169,662 IDPs, among other displacement reasons. During the same period, a total of 131,590 IDPs were also tracked through the Emergency Site Assessment (ESA) round 2 which is a monthly tool used to track internal displacement in Tigray, Afar and Amhara regions caused by the crisis in Northern Ethiopia. This was also the first time DTM conducted its Site Assessment tool in Addis Ababa, thus tracking internal displacement in every region in Ethiopia for the first time. Combining the SA and ESA figures brings the total to 2.1 million IDPs identified throughout the country thus far. However, kindly note that there were substantial access and/or security issues throughout Tigray region, Metekel zone in Benishangul Gumz region, the Wallegas and the Hararges in Oromia region and Sheka zone in SNNP region.
