30 Apr 2018 Nigeria Round 22 Download

This report of the Round XXII Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) assessment by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) aims to improve understanding of the scope of internal displacements, returns and the needs of affected populations in conflict-affected states of north-eastern Nigeria. The report covers the period of 18 March to 18 April and reflects trends from the six states most affected by displacement: Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe. Round XXII identified 1,881,198 individuals as displaced in the affected states, representing a six per  cent increase (or 98,708 people) in comparison to 1,782,490 individuals identified in Round XXI  (published in February 2018). This increase carries on the upward trend in the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) observed recently.

To gain insights into the profiles of IDPs, interviews with five per cent of the identified IDP  population — that is 85,519 displaced persons — were conducted during this round of assessments. The information collated and analysed in this report includes the reasons for displacement, places of origin and dwelling types, mobility and unfulfilled needs of the displaced populations.

Additionally, site assessments were carried out in 2,356 sites, with the aim of better understanding the needs of the affected population. These sites included 272 camps and camp-like settings and 2,084 locations where IDPs were residing with host communities. Site assessments include an analysis of sector-wide needs, including shelter and non-food items, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food and nutrition, health, education, livelihood, security, communication and protection.

Given that the State of Borno is the most affected by conflict-related displacements, this report places a specific focus on data and analyses pertaining to it. Lastly, this report includes analyses on the increasing number of returnees and their shelter conditions.
