The Displacement Tracking Matrix programme was established in Libya in October 2015 to fill the need for accurate and timely data on displacement, return and migration dynamics in the country.

DTM Libya tracks IDPs, returnees and migrants through two complementary modules:

Mobility Tracking carries out regular baseline assessments gathering data on the numbers, locations, characteristics and needs of IDPs, returnees and migrants across Libya, providing country-wide baselines on these population groups.

Flow Monitoring gathers data on migrants mobile in Libya. Flow Monitoring consists of daily assessments quantifying the flow of migrants at key entry, transit and exit points in the country. Flow Monitoring Surveys are also conducted with a randomly selected sample of observed migrants on a daily basis to obtain more detailed information about migrants’ origins, characteristics, routes used, and migratory drivers. All Flow Monitoring reports are available on the DTM Libya website.

DTM Libya launched its first round of Mobility Tracking in January 2016. During 2016 DTM carried out 7 displacement tracking rounds concluding its last round in November through to December. This report will focus on Mobility Tracking data on IDPs and returnees. Mobility Tracking Round 7 data on migrants is presented in a separate report, Libya 2016 Migration Profiles and Trends (i).
