About Dominica

The country of Dominica was devastated by the passage of Hurricane Maria when a category 5 hurricane made landfall on the island on 18 September 2017, causing the death of approximately 26 persons and extensive damage to buildings and infrastructure. As per an aerial survey from the Pacific Disaster Centre of 6,770 of the 26,085 buildings in the country 67 per cent of buildings were damaged (moderately or severely) and 23 per cent were destroyed. Many families who took refuge in pre-identified evacuation shelters (hereafter referred to as collective centres) across the country prior to and during the hurricane still reside in these centres.

To identify the existing collective centres and monitor displacement across the country, IOM established its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in Dominica. The DTM tracked population movement in Dominica through a set of tools including observation, cartography, key informant interviews, and physical counting. Four rounds of Mobility Tracking, a Household Intention Survey, a special report on schools and initial Emergency Shelter Overviews were conducted from October 2017 to February 2018.
