Between 27 September and 02 October, fear of attacks by Non-State Armed Groups in Mocimboa da Praia, Marere (Aldeia Marere, Nazimodja, Clugu, Luexete) triggered 4,695 individual displacements within the district. Reported families have taken shelter within transit shelters on the school grounds of Bairo 30, Mocimboa da Praia Sede.

An estimate of 190 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been identified with vulnerabilities. All reported displaced families walked approximately 30 KM from Marere villages to Bairro 30. An estimated 2,661 were children under 18 years old. Owing to prevailing security concerns reported by displaced families, intentions on duration of their stay in Bairro 30 remains uncertain. Movements in the region continue to be dynamic between Mocimboa da Praia host communities and
neighbouring district of Mueda (Mueda Sede and Awasse). Additional arrivals continue to be recorded in Bairro Ntende, Mocimboa da Praia Sede. Updates will be circulated to partners as soon as available.

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.
