Iraq — Displacement Report 116 (May–June 2020)

23 Jul 2020 Iraq Round 116 English Download

Data collection for Round 116 took place in May and June 2020. As of 30 June 2020, DTM identified 4,718,130 returnees (786,355 households), dispersed across 8 governorates, 38 districts, and 2,042 locations in Iraq. A lower number of new returnees was recorded in Round 116 (12,948) compared with the number recorded in Round 115 (44,778) and this number of new returnees constitute one of the lowest since returns started in 2015. The most common governorates that individuals returned to between May and June 2020 include Ninewa (where 7,542 individuals were recorded), Salah al-Din (3,222), and Anbar (1,578). As with Round 115, this low return rate is unsurprising as the Iraqi government authorities continue to impose mobility restrictions to curb the spread of of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
