Methodological Framework

The DTM Methodological Framework 2nd Edition, which reflects DTM global operations has been developed, tailored and refined during years of operational experience in a wide range of contexts to track and monitor mobile populations and their needs. A key factor in DTM’s effectiveness to date has been the flexibility to customize the design and approach by selecting and combining tools and methods to achieve the desired objectives and data needs within a specific operating environment. This Framework aims to facilitate continued innovation, learning and adaptation, while promoting quality, coherence and application of good practice across DTM operations worldwide. The previous sections have been designed to support the identification of appropriate components, tools and methods for designing DTM activities, within a framework that prioritizes core principles, quality assurance, data governance and other related concerns.
