The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is to collect information on large and sudden population movements as well as on security and climate emergencies. Information is collected through key informant interviews or direct observation. This dashboard presents information on a movement which occurred on 13 September 2023 in the town of Ounianga-Kébir, situated in the province of Ennedi Ouest, near the Libyan border.

On September 9th, 2023, a total of 61 Chadian and 1 Nigerian nationals (ten among them are unaccompanied children) were collectively expelled to Libya and arrived in the town of OuniangaKébir on 13 September 2023. Additionally, these individuals reported having spent between 3 months and 3 years in Libyan prison in Koufra before being expelled. It has been noted that, most of the expelled persons come from Abéché, Ati and Amtiman. Therefore, the 62 expelled individuals have not received any assistance and are living in a situation of extreme vulnerability (several of the unaccompanied children are reported ill) and do not have any support to continue their trip towards their communities of origin. As such, they reported urgent needs in food after going several days without eating, medication, as well as transport assistance to their localities of origin.
