This report, which presents the results from Round 43 of Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) assessments carried out by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), aims to improve the understanding of the scope of internal displacement and return movements in north-east Nigeria. The assessment for this report took place between 1 August and 19 November 2022 and reflects the number of IDPs from the six states in Nigeria’s north-east geopolitical zone. This zone is the most affected by the conflict and consists of the following states: Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe. This report also contains findings from the needs monitoring assessment conducted in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states which are the most affected states in the north-east zone.
In Round 43, a total of 2,375,661 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) were identified in 483,467 households. This signifies a decrease of 3 per cent (or 79,529 individuals) compared to Round 42 when 2,455,190 IDPs were recorded (July 2022). Furthermore, 2,100,180 returnees were recorded in the Round 43 assessment. This number represents an increase of 117,050 individuals or more than six per cent compared to Round 41 when 1,983,130 returnees were recorded in June 2022.
