Dec 31 2022
- Mobility Tracking
- Baseline Assessment
This report, which presents the results from Round 11 of Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) assessments carried out by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), in collaboration with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and State Emergency Management Agencies (SEMAs) in the north-central and north-west regions, aims to improve the understanding of the scope of internal displacement. This report presents information on the numbers, living conditions and needs of displaced populations in the north-central and north-west regions affected by the crisis. The data was collected directly from internally displaced persons (IDPs) in 881 wards located in 180 Local Government Areas (LGAs) across the states Benue, Nasarawa, Plateau and Kaduna (north-central) and Kano, Sokoto, Katsina and Zamfara (north-west) between 03 and 31 December 2022.
The Round 11 of DTM assessments identified 1,190,293 IDPs in 191,688 households across the eight states covered in northcentral and north-west Nigeria, representing an increase of 102,418 individuals (9%) compared to the 1,087,875 IDPs identified during the last Round of assessments, conducted in October 2022 (Round 10). While there was a significant increase in displaced persons due to the flood incidents reported in some north-central states such as Benue and Nasarawa, there was a considerable decrease recorded between Round 10 and Round 11 since some locations in LGA Maradun in the State of Zamfara were not accessible for DTM enumerators because of ongoing insecurities.
