Dashboard DTM Internal Displacement

Submitted by Kashif N

The dashboard shows number of IDPs and People-In-Need in seven African countries. The IDPs data is coming from IOM's Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) and People-In-Need from OCHA's HNOs. All datasets are uploaded on HDX and tagged using HXL standard. The map and charts are live-updating, incorporating new data as soon as uploaded on the Humanitarian Data Exchange.

    This datasets has IDPs, Household & Returnees data at Admin3 level gathered through DTM Mobility Tracking Assessment. In the context of the political instability that has prevailed since the uprising in Libya (October 2011) and culminated in the collapse of a fragile central authority accompanied by fragmentation and infighting among myriads of militias, with continued fighting since the mid-2014 escalations, estimates indicate that the number of Internally Displaced Per-sons (IDPs) in Libya has exceeded 400,000 individuals, some eight percent of the total population (HNO, September 2015). While the country struggles to achieve and maintain stability, thousands of migrants are also taking journeys to and through Libya in a desperate bid to seek a better life in Europe. These migrants are exposed to risks of being trafficked and exploited while traveling through dangerous routes in deserts and territories controlled by different armed groups, as well as dying during attempts to cross the Mediterranean Sea. However, there has been no standardized mechanism in place to verify and regularly update IDP and migrant numbers. Given that most humanitarian and international organizations operate remotely from Tunis since mid-July 2014 due to the deteriorating security situation, maintaining access to reliable and updated data on the humanitarian situation in Libya has been challenging.

    The dataset contains IDPs, returnees at sub national level. The dataset also has reason of displacement, origin and dates of multiple displacements. The context of displacement in Mali remains complex and fluid. Movements of IDPs currently residing in the southern regions to the northern regions continue to be reported. While some have indicated that they have returned definitively, other IDPs say they travel back and forth between the place of travel and the place of origin.

    The dataset contains IDPs individual and households at admin2 level. IOM has been developing a Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) since May 2015 aimed at effectively monitoring and evaluating the flows of Burundian IDPs and providing accurate information on the current IDP situation. The DTM in Burundi has been successfully used in 2014, upon the request of the humanitarian community and the GoB when some areas of Bujumbura were flooded, which caused displacement. This tool allowed registering IDPs in four IDP sites and in host families in four locations and identifying their humanitarian needs.

    This Data is about IDP, returnees from CAR (previous IDP) and returnees from other countries repartition by origin and period of displacement and between 2013 and the date of assessment. Evaluation has been run in 6 prefectures (admin1), 16 sub-prefectures (admin2) and 367 localities.

    Data set has IDPs, Households, geographic locations and reasons of displacement etc. In response to the need for accurate information on internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Nigeria, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) began implementing the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) project in July 2014. The project is supporting the Government of Nigeria and other humanitarian response partners to conduct IDPs assessments in a systematic way as well as to establish a profile of the IDP population.

    The dataset contains IDPs, Returnees and Refugees at sub national level with information on IDPs in camps and host communities. IOM set up and rolled out the first round of the DTM in November 2015 with the objective of providing regular, accurate and updated information on displaced populations within the Far North region of Cameroon to better support the response of the Government of Cameroon and the humanitarian community.

    The dataset has displaced people at sub national level with cause of the displacement. IOM Madagascar is implementing its DTM program to better understand the movements of drought-affected populations and provide critical information to government and humanitarian actors on the subject.
