Yemen: Displacement Tracking Matrix | DTM Round IV IOM Area Report: Yemen IDP Crisis - April 2016
The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is implemented under the framework of the Task Force for Population Movement (TFPM), a working group of the Protection Cluster, co-led by IOM and UNHCR. The TFPM was established in April, 2015 as a collaborative approach to coordinate efforts and harmonize tools and methodologies among partners to track and monitor internal displacement for the whole of Yemen.
The TFPM reports through standard and agreed upon templates and timeframes, which IOM contributes to with data and national level analysis.
One year into the conflict, internal displacement in Yemen is still on the rise. According to the 8th and most recent report of the TFPM released in April 2016, 2,755,916 people have been internally displaced in Yemen since the crisis erupted in late March 2015.
Within the structure and agreements of the TFPM, IOM is responsible for displacement tracking across 12 governorates; Abyan, Al Bayda, Al Mahara, Aden, Al Dhale’e, Al Jawf, Hadramaut, Ibb, Lahj, Shabwah, Socotra, Taizz.
Across IOMs area of responsibility within the framework of the TFPM and as of April 2016, the DTM field staff identified and validated the locations of 942,342 individuals displaced by conflict (157,057 HHs) and 443,232 individuals who had returned following displacement due to the conflict (73,872 HHs).
The identified IDP population is primarily in Taizz which hosts 66% or 620,934 IDPs, while the boarding governorates to Taizz of Ibb and Lahj host the next largest IDP population with 12% and 6% or 111,384 and 52,866 individuals, respectively.
