IOM Mozambique: DTM Baseline Assessment Report Round 13, Cabo Delgado, Nampula, Niassa, Sofala, Zambezia and Inhambane Provinces - September 2021


Baseline Assessment Round 13

Increased security incidents in northern Mozambique since 2017 resulted in population displacement as well as subsequent humanitarian needs. To better understand the scope of displacement trends and needs of displaced populations, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) activated DTM in Cabo Delgado province in February 2019.

The DTM has focal points and enumerators in 118 localities of the Cabo Delgado province and collects data in close coordination with the Government. This 13th round of assessment also covered neighbouring provinces of Inhambane (6 localities) Nampula (77 localities), Niassa (12 localities), as well as the provinces of Zambezia (6 localities), and Sofala (2 localities).

Security and access restraints in Mocimboa da Praia, Muidumbe and Palma districts have limited data collection resulting in no updated estimates recorded by DTM field teams and focal points. For this round, 14 out of the 17 districts in Cabo Delgado were covered. In addition, IDP baseline estimates in Nampula province are currently under verication in collaboration with INGD and local authorities. Verifaction across 21 districts in Nampula will be updated and recorded within the next round of IOM DTM Baseline Assessment Reports.
