DTM teams activated Emergency Event Tracking (EET) to monitor the displacement of individuals affected by inter-communal conflict between Masalit and Arab tribes. Clashes erupted on 16 January 2021 in the Krinding area of Ag Geneina town, West Darfur. The third update estimates a total number of 97,825 individuals (19,554 households) displaced across Ag Geneina town and its surrounding villages. Since the second EET, there has been a 14 per cent increase in the number of individuals (and households) displaced, with additional caseloads arriving in Ag Geneina town as well as the villages of Misterei, Muli and Sisi camp nearby. All individuals are Sudanese nationals. Based on a ranking scale, the three main priority needs for the total caseload are identified as food, non-food items and WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene).
