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 from 02 to 23 October 2023, in Lac Province. Since the beginning of 2023, several security incidents have occurred in the Lac province, resulting in population displacements.

In October 2023, 1,589 households (6,788 individuals) were affected by displacements, which represents a decrease of 48 per cent compared to September 2023. All (100%) of the displaced persons in October resided in their habitual place of residence prior to displacement. The main reason for their displacement was armed attacks (71%). In addition, the majority (67%) of displaced populations stayed in the same sub-prefecture (see table on page 2). The three priority needs reported by the displaced populations were food (33%), shelter (23%), non-food items (20%), water (20%) and cash (4%).
