As of 30 October 2018, nearly one year after the official end of the conflict with The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), more than 4.1 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) have returned to their places of origin across eight governorates in Iraq. The Return Index provides a means of measuring the severity of living conditions in the locations to which they are returning. Developed by IOM DTM, the Returns Working Group, and Social Inquiry, this tool provides singular analysis and deep insights information that will bridge humanitarian, recovery and stabilization needs. This will allow partners working in Iraq to better strategize for interventions and resource allocation in vulnerable areas.
