Jul 16 2018
- Mobility Tracking
- Baseline Assessment
DTM Rapid Response Assessments are designed to provide up-to-date information on large scale population displacement occurring outside the DTM Mobility Tracking data collection periods. The Rapid Response Assessment tool is deployed at woreda level to collect basic information about displaced populations through key informants, mainly woreda and zonal government officials. The aim of the assessment is to provide the humanitarian community with initial population estimates and displacement site lists to facilitate the coordination and planning of the first response. The information contained in this report was collected by DTM staff and government officials. Renewed inter-communal violence along the border of Gedeo (SNNPR region) and West Guji (Oromia region) has displaced an estimated 147,040 in West Guji. This is in addition to the 822,187 IDP estimated in Gedeo zone.
