The objective of DTM’s (Displacement Tracking Matrix) Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements. Following floods which have been ongoing since the end of July 2020 in N’Djamena, more than 5,000 households were forced to flee their homes. They took refuge either elsewhere in their arrondissement, or in neighbouring arrondissements. In order to host the households who were left without shelter, Chadian authorities and the humanitarian community identified the Tradex site, located in the 9th arrondissement, where 98 households (562 individuals) are currently settled.
The data presented in this report was collected through the registration of households, conducted on 12 October 2020 by IOM staff and the local authorities of the 9th arrondissement, in order to facilitate the provision of humanitarian assistance. This report aims to provide information on the demographic profiles of these displaced persons, as well as an overview of their needs.
