Between August and September 2023, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), through its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) methodology, deployed the Site Assessment (SA) Round 34 and Village Assessment Survey (VAS) Round 17 assessment tools to assess the mobility, needs and vulnerabilities of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and returning IDPs across Ethiopia.

This snapshot report will present key findings on needs and vulnerabilities, and will focus on obstacles related to accessing shelter/Non-Food Items (ESNFI) and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in the locations assessed through the SA and VAS assessments. The indicators included in the assessments were designed by the Disability Inclusion (DI) expert in country with support from the IOM-DTM team, and aim to shed light on the obstacles that people with difficulties seeing, hearing, walking, communicating and understanding, face in relation to their shelters, accessing distributions and using bathing facilities/latrines. In 61.67% of sites with IDPs, the first obstacle in relation to shelter was physical barriers to enter and leave their home and circulate inside the shelter.
