What is the Displacement Tracking Matrix?
The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) gathers and analyzes data to disseminate critical multi layered information on the mobility, vulnerabilities, and needs of displaced and mobile populations that enables decision makers and responders to provide these populations with better context specific assistance.
Global Data Institute
Established in 2022, IOM's Global Data Institute (GDI) works to enhance the availability and use of data to achieve stronger governance outcomes and positive impacts for migrants and societies in line with IOM's Migration Data Strategy. DTM is one of the founding pillars of the GDI, alongside the Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC).
