Ethiopia — National Displacement Report 13 (June — July 2022)

20 Oct 2022 Ethiopia Download

In order to capture the displacement and return dynamics in Ethiopia, DTM Ethiopia's National Displacement Report combines findings from its Site Assessment (SA) in Section 1 and findings from the Village Assessment Survey (VAS) in Section 2. The Site Assessment tracks the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs), while the Village Assessment Survey tracks the number of IDPs who are returning or have returned to their communities. 

According to data collected through the Site Assessment round 30 in June and July 2022*, 2.72 million IDPs (522,138 households) were internally displaced across 2,120 accessible sites in Ethiopia. Due to operational constraints, the figure for Tigray region is not included in the national total. This reflects a -1.58% decrease of 43,618 IDPs compared to the previous round of data collection in March and April 2022.

According to the data collected primarily between June and July 2022*, there were an estimated 2 million returning IDPs (456,120 households) across 1,662 villages in Ethiopia. Due to operational constraints, the figure for Tigray region is not included in the national total. The increase in the number of returning IDPs can be attributed to the increase in coverage this round, especially in villages in Amhara region.

*Due to the greater IDP caseload, data collection in Amhara and Oromia regions began in May 2022.
