The purpose 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 provides information on movements which occurred during the period from 01 to 30 September 2023, in the Lac Province.

During September 2023, several security incidents occurred in the Lac province and beyond (Niger), resulting in population displacements. A total of 3,546 households (12,627 individuals) were affected by displacement, which represents an increase of 43 per cent compared to August. Among the displaced population, 340 households (1,800 individuals) Chadian refugees who were forced to leave the sous-préfecture of N'guiguimi (Niger) for Daboua sous-préfecture. The vast majority (86%) of affected individuals during September were members of local communities before this displacement. The main reason for displacement was armed attacks (82%). The majority (65%) of displaced persons stayed in the same sous-préfectures (see table on page 2). The three essential needs reported by most displaced persons at their places of displacement were food (29%), non-food items (29%), shelter (23%) and water (19%).
