This data analysis on the possession of identity documents results from two complementary approaches: 1. Assessment of displacement areas (Key Informant level) : These assessments allow to identify areas (host families and displacement sites) where the possession of identity documents (IDs) is either high or low. This approach informs the prioritization of areas where assistance on IDs’ issuance is most needed. 2. Household Surveys : These surveys allow to collect granular information on household level. Whereas the first methodology informs prioritization of areas, surveys allow from a representative sample to have the proportion of households possessing or not IDs. This eventually allowing to define the number of potential beneficiaries of assistance of IDs' issuance.
Results indicate that IDPs on sites have less access to IDs compared to those in host families, 5,071 displaced households on sites (20,300 persons) do not have IDs, the lack of IDs is particularly significant in 23 sites
The Central Sahel area, and in particular the Liptako Gourma region, which borders Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger, is affected by a complex crisis involving growing competition over dwindling resources; climatic variability; demographic pressure; high levels of poverty; disaffection and a lack of livelihood opportunities; communal tensions; the absence of state institutions and basic services; and violence related to organized crime and non-state armed groups. The crisis has triggered significant displacement of populations in the concerned countries and is affecting neighbouring countries such as Mauritania and the coastal countries.
As of November 2023, 3,021,024 individuals have been displaced, including 2,650,836 internally displaced persons (88% of the displaced population) and 370,188 refugees (12% of the displaced population). Seventy per cent of the displaced populations (2,100,130 individuals) were located in Burkina Faso, while 15 per cent resided in Mali (465,403 individuals), 9 per cent in Niger (263,918 individuals) and 3 per cent in Mauritania (104,324 individuals). The crisis’ recent spill over to coastal countries, namely Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo and Benin, shows growing number of refugees coming from the Central Sahel and populations internally displaced. As of November, 96,249 individuals were affected by displacement within the four countries (9,847 in Benin, 32,926 in Côte d’Ivoire, 7,171 in Ghana and 46,305 in Togo) of which 30,372 were internally displaced.

The Central African Republic (CAR), which has experienced continuous volatility for the past two decades, has been riddled by a crisis which ignited in 2012 with a violent takeover of power and has developed into a complex protracted state of permanent insecurity and fragility which has spilled over into neighbouring countries. The crisis is characterized by power struggles amongst elites, the absence of state institutions and public investment, religious and ethnic tensions and disputes for the control of key resources. More recently, the crisis in Sudan, which started in April 2023, is affecting the eastern part of the CAR witnessing arrivals of displaced populations.
As of November 2023, 3,909,286 individuals were affected, including 490,868 internally displaced persons (13% of the displaced population), 2,125,798 returnees former IDPs (54%), 513,037 returnees from abroad (13%) and 779,853 refugees (20%). In the CAR, the largest displaced population consists of former IDP returnees. Refugees from the CAR are primarily hosted by Cameroon (353,701 individuals, or 45% of the refugees), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) (211,963 individuals, or 27% of the refugees) and Chad (128,619 individuals, or 16% of the refugees). Nonetheless, 18,597 refugees from the Central African Republic are still living in Sudan (2% of the refugees). Since the beginning of the Sudan crisis, a total of 15,335 individuals have entered the CAR through the border in Am-Dafock. The country is also home for refugees from neighbouring countries, hosting a total of 30,710 refugees coming from Sudan (20,201 individuals), the DRC (6,411 individuals), South Soudan (2,753 individuals) and Chad (1,345 individuals).
In Central America, North America and the Caribbean, large migratory movements emerge and flow. According to migration data from the government of Panama, between July and December 2022, at least 198,832 migrants entered Panama through the Darien route. During the same period in 2021, 107,510 people entered, representing an 85 per cent increase.
From July to December 2022, IOM's Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) collected primary data in more than 40 locations in the Region. DTM is a system to collect and analyze primary data, to disseminate critical information on the mobility, vulnerabilities and needs of displaced and mobile populations, for decision making and to provide context-specific assistance. Between July and December 2022, DTM activities were carried out by eight countries in the region, through the implementation of different DTM components including mobility tracking of IDPs, flow monitoring registry and surveys, as well as surveys to people on the move and returnees.
This report aims to provide an overview of migration movements in the region, including the locations and months in which primary data were collected through DTM instruments.
- Biometric Registration
Six LGAs have been mapped as locations with IDPs in Benue State based on DTM Round 11 (March 2023). So far, the biometrically registered IDPs have covered the location of Makurdi LGA (5 camps and 2 host community sites), Guma LGA (2 camps and two host community sites), Logo LGA (2 camps and 2 host community sites), Kwande (1 camp and 1 host community site) and currently ongoing in Agatu LGA (2 host community sites).
The registration has shown that Guma LGA has the highest number of IDPs, with 23,283 individuals (6,750 households), followed by Kwande with 15,934 individuals (3,232 households), then Makurdi with 14,041 individuals (4,150 households). Logo had 13,632 individuals (3,314 households). The registration is ongoing in Agatu LGA, with 21,895 registered individuals (5,649 households).
During the registration, 10,191 individuals were identified with vulnerabilities and specific needs (including but not limited to serious medical illness) and have been referred to UNHCR/FJDP for further support. All registered IDPs have received biometric cards with unique numbers for easy identification. The registration is an ongoing process.

З 3 по 25 вересня 2023 року Міжнародна організація з міграції (МОМ) провела 14-й раунд Загального обстеження населення (ОГН) - високорепрезентативної оцінки внутрішнього переміщення в Україні, яка збирає інформацію про чисельність населення, потоки мобільності, наміри та умови, щоб сприяти прийняттю обґрунтованих рішень щодо стратегічних, технічних і програмних аспектів реагування та відновлення в Україні. Крім того, 14-й раунд продовжує оцінювати довгострокові рішення щодо внутрішнього переміщення відповідно до критеріїв, запропонованих Рамковою програмою Міжвідомчого постійного комітету з питань довгострокових рішень для ВПО (МПК). Цей звіт також містить нові розділи, присвячені підготовці до зими та участі у суспільних справах. Загальне опитування населення було проведене шляхом інтерв'ю з 20 000 респондентів за допомогою комп'ютеризованого телефонного інтерв'ю (CATI) та методу випадкового набору номера (RDD).
The crisis currently affecting the Lake Chad Basin states results from a complex combination of factors, including conflict with non-state armed groups, extreme poverty, underdevelopment and a changing climate, which together have triggered significant displacement of populations. As of November 2023, Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria were hosting an estimated 5,990,879 affected individuals made up of internally displaced persons (IDPs), returnees (former IDPs and returnees from abroad) and refugees (both in-and out-of-camp). Thirteen per cent of the affected population (774,927 individuals) were located in Cameroon, while 5 per cent resided in Chad (307,693 individuals), 7 per cent in Niger (446,903 individuals) and finally, 75 per cent in Nigeria (4,461,356 individuals). Overall, the numbers show increases in IDPs, returnees former IDPs and refugees since December 2022 within the region, with respectively 5, 11 and 1 per cent variations. The IDPs numbers have increased in Cameroon (+18%), Chad (+8%) and Niger (+2%) but have shown a slight decrease in Nigeria (-7%). Overall figure for returnees from abroad has slightly decreased in the region since December 2022, by 3 per cent.
