About Iraq

Reinforced in January 2014 in response to the need for information on displacement linked to the worsening armed conflict, the DTM programme in Iraq collects key information on internally displaced persons (IDPs) and returnees through different components and methodologies across the entire country.

Through IOM's Rapid Assessment and Response Teams (RARTs) -composed of 140 field staff- present throughout the Iraqi territory, the DTM collects data on numbers and locations of IDPs and returnees using an extended network of over 4,000 key informants. In addition to information collected from key informants, identified locations hosting IDPs are then visited and directly assessed by the RARTs to collect more detailed and in-depth information on the displaced population.
