On January 12th 2010, an earthquake of 7.0 magnitude hit Haiti, resulting in the destruction of more than 300,000 buildings and the displacement of 1.5 million people. Following this destructive earthquake, and as the lead Camp Coordination/Camp Management agency, IOM took the initiative to develop a unified displacement data management process, called the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM). A comprehensive multi-sectoral tracking system was applied as a monitoring tool to track the IDP population on basic conditions in IDP sites, and camp-like settlements in support of the Emergency Shelter and Camp Coordination and Camp Management (E-Shelter/CCCM) Cluster and other humanitarian and recovery actors in Haiti. IOM implements the DTM in partnership with the Government of Haiti (GoH) through the Directorate of Civil Protection (DPC in French).
