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. This dashboard provides information on movements which occurred during the period from 03 to 24 March 2023, in Lac Province. 


Since the beginning of 2023, several incidents were observed in the Lake Province, resulting in an increased number of displacements. During the period from 3 to 24 March 2023 covered by this report, 1,834 households (7,854 individuals) have been affected by displacement, which corresponds to an increase of 15 per cent compared to the month of February 2023 covered by the previous summary report (monthly ETT from January to February). Furthermore, most of these people (64%) were previously displaced before these new displacements. It should be noted that these displacements were mainly caused by preventive displacement (65%) and armed attacks (19%). Indeed, all the displaced persons sought refuge to localities situated in the same sous-prefectures as their places of origin (see Table 1). The priority needs of these displaced persons included access to food (29%), non-food items (25%), shelter (21%), water (21%) and livelihoods (4%).
