The objective of DTM’s (Displacement Tracking Matrix) Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements.
Since 16 April 2020, a total of 636 individuals deported from Libya and quarantined in the town of Ounianga Kébir (Ennedi-Ouest Province) – in accordance with the measures taken by the Chadian authorities to prevent and contain the spread of COVID-19 – have been identified by DTM. Their arrivals were reported on in successive ETT dashboards.
The data presented in this report was collected through the individual registration of these travellers, conducted from 16 April to 26 July 2020 by local authorities, with the support of IOM staff, in order to facilitate the provision of humanitarian assistance. This report aims to provide information on the profiles, characteristics, migratory experiences and intentions of these travellers, in order to better understand their backgrounds and to better target the assistance provided to them.
