IOM DTM Sudan presents its sixth Monthly Displacement Overview. This publication provides an account of Sudan’s displacement context since 15 April 2023 – outlining population mobility and displacement, as well the present and evolving needs of IDPs across Sudan.


Recognizing the need for more detailed insights into the IDP situation, including the priority needs, access to services, movement intentions, and demographic breakdowns of the affected population, DTM Sudan has undertaken a comprehensive review of our data collection tool. In collaboration with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, we have developed a new tool to better inform humanitarian response operations, aligning with the DTM global methodology. Leveraging our extensive network of approximately 367 field-based enumerators and a robust system of over 3,266 key informants across the country, DTM gathered data on IDPs across 6,845 locations, in 179 of Sudan’s 189 localities, across all of Sudan’s 18 states, during February 2024. 

Key Findings

  • DTM Sudan estimates that 6,326,416 individuals (1,261,060) households) have been recently internally displaced.
  • IOM DTM also reports that an estimated 1,884,909 mixed cross-border movements have been made into neighbouring countries.
  • Since 15 April 2023, 46 per cent of the IDP caseload sought refuge in the Darfur and Kordofan regions, whereas 53 per cent were observed across the Northern, Eastern, and Central states.
  • The majority of the IDP caseload (66%) were seeking shelter with the host community.
  • While food remains the highest priority need, health and non-food items are also growing concerns.
