IOM began biometric registration of IDPs in June of 2014. Biometric registration entails fingerprinting of all household members and photographing young children and babies whose fingerprints are not recorded. Biometric registration reduces duplication and errors commonly found in a classic registration process and provides baseline information that humanitarian actors can use for response planning.
