- Baseline Assessment
The majority of the recorded population were displaced before 2018, with 904 sites which reportedly opened in 2016/17 (DTM Rounds 1 - 8). Conflict was reported as the primary driver of displacement (1,663,396 IDPs), followed by displacement due to climate induced factors (508,723 IDPs). This trend is consistent over time, with conflict constantly being the primary cause of displacement across the country. It should be noted that a number of the drought affected communities were originally supported through the government led Integrated Service Sites, set up in drought affected areas.
