Iraq — Displacement Report 11 (December 2014)

26 Dec 2014 Iraq English Download

From the beginning of January through 25 December 2014 the DTM identified 2,123,340 internally displaced individuals dispersed across 2,092 distinct locations in Iraq. Considering available information and DTM methodology, the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) maintains 2.1 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) as a planning figure for the response. After reaching 2 million displaced individuals in November 2014, the IDP population has continued to rise as families flee their homes from continued violence in the Central and Central North region of Iraq. Of these populations, half a million individuals remain displaced from the first identified wave of displacement in 2014 following the outbreak of conflict in Anbar, thus nearing one year of displacement. Through the reporting period the DTM has tracked and identified an overall increase in displacement figures of 6,164 families (an estimated 36,984 individuals). Overall, a decrease of nearly 30,000 individuals was observed across the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI), while an increase in displacement figures was observed across several governorates in the Central and Central North Region of Iraq, amounting to almost 70,000 individuals.
