In order to capture the displacement and mobility dynamics in Ethiopia, DTM Ethiopia’s National Displacement Report combines its findings from its Site Assessment (SA) in Section 1 and findings from the Village Assessment Survey (VAS) in Section 2. Through the Site Assessment which was conducted from 1 to 30 September 2019, DTM captured 1,606,086 IDPs (307,437 IDP households) in 1,149 sites. The biggest causes of displacement were conflict which displaced 1,073,583 IDPs, followed by drought which affected 402,562 IDPs and seasonal flood which affected 35,546 IDPs. VAS was carried out between 1 to 12 October 2019 and covered 941 villages across 7 regions. VAS is targeted at locations with high returns to evaluate the absorption capacity of the village with a focus on accessibility of services, livelihoods and reintegration. A total of 1,138,707 returning IDPs, 52,977 IDPs, 7,412 returned migrants and 1,144,380 host community members were tracked through VAS.
