Nigeria: IOM Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Report Round XVI, May 2017

Executive Summary

The Round XVI of the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Assessment Report by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Government of Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) is aimed at creating a better understanding of the scope of displacement and assess the needs of affected populations in conflict-affected states of northeast Nigeria. The report covers the period of 5 April to 15 May 2017 and includes the six most-affected states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe.

The data collected in this report comes from different DTM tools used by enumerators at various administrative levels. These administrative levels consist of Local Government Areas (LGAs), wards and displacement sites. Data was collected via interviews with key informants such as representatives of the administration, community leaders, religious leaders and humanitarian aid workers. To ensure data consistency, assessments were conducted and cross checked with various key informants.

In this round of assessments, 80,670 people wereinterviewed. These interviews provided information on: demographic profiles; reasons for displacement; changes in the percentages of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) over time; origin, dwelling types and unfulfilled needs of the displaced people. This sample represents 4 per cent of the identified IDP population.

To better understand the needs of the affected population, this report includes site assessments carried out in 229 displacement sites where IDPs reside in camps and camp-like settings (camps, collective centres and transitional centres), covering 656,492 displaced individuals (124,324 households). Site assessments provide information regarding the locations and numbers of IDPs. Location-based assessments were also conducted in 1,874 sites where IDPs were staying with host communities, covering 1,227,839 displaced individuals (215,038 households). The assessments conducted at site and location-based levels also present an analysis of sector-wise needs and response including shelter and Non-Food Items (NFIs), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), food and nutrition, health, education, livelihood, protection and communication. Lastly, this report includes assessments    involving    returnees    and    their    shelter
