Fear of attacks by Non-State Armed Groups in Macomia district (Pangane) triggered the movement of 428 individuals arriving within host community settings in Quirimba and Matemo islands. An estimate of 20 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been identified with vulnerabilities. All the 428 individuals traveled by Boat/Canoes to their current locations of displacement. Within this reporting period, all of the recorded movements represent individuals who have been displaced more than four times.

IOM teams observed an average of 214 individuals arriving at different locations within the reporting period (23 September, please see below Charts for further information). Movements in the region remain dynamic between host communities.

The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) - Movement Alert is to collect information on large and sudden population movements, and to provide support to humanitarian response partners by disseminating data on IDPs to support effective humanitarian response to the affected population. Information is collected through key informant interviews or direct observation. The dashboard provides basic information on displacements, and additional information can be shared upon request.
