The main objective of the DTM programme is to support to the Government and humanitarian partners by establishing a comprehensive system to collect, analyze and disseminate data on displaced populations (IDPs, returnees and refugees) in order to provide effective assistance to the affected population.
To better understand the scope of displacement as well as access to basic services of affected populations, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) is implementing its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) programme in Nigeria’s North Central and North West Geopolitical Zones, in collaboration with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and State Emergency Management Agencies (SEMAs).
DTM aims to track and monitor displacement and population mobility in the aforementioned regions. This report is an analysis of Round 7 of data collected at a variety of levels, including information on displacement locations, reasons for displacement, the length of displacement, the intentions and conditions of migrants as well as internally displaced persons.
This report presents information on the numbers, living conditions and needs of displaced populations in the North Central and North West regions affected by the crisis. The data was collected directly through key informants (KI) in 852 wards located within 176 Local Government Areas (LGAs) across the states of Benue, Nasarawa, Plateau and Kaduna (North Central) and Kano, Sokoto, Katsina and Zamfara (North West) between 21 June and 27 July 2021.
