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 23 june to 27 july 2023, in Lac Province. 

In July 2023, in addition to internal displacements due to security incidents in the Fouli department, local and state border authorities reported the movement of 142 households (445 individuals) from the Daboua sub-prefecture to Niger. These individuals left the Keiga, Dabourom, Ngollom and Konguiyo sites in particular. The main reason for this displacement was the search for assistance and means of subsistence.

While a lull was observed in the Lac province during the month of June 2023, an intensification of security incidents occurred in July, which caused a large number of displacements. During these two months, 3,805 households (13,958 individuals) have been affected by displacement. It should be noted that the vast majority of displacements were observed during July 2023 (3,530 households, 13,098 individuals were displaced). The quasi-totality (86%) of displaced individuals between June and July 2023 were locals before these new displacements. Indeed, the main reason for displacement was preventive movements (89%). During the two months, the majority of displaced individuals (79%) took refuge in localities situated in the same sous-prefectures as their provenance (see table on pages 2 and 3). After their displacement, they reported significant needs in non-food items (33%), food (25%), shelter (21%), water (13%) and health (8%).
