Between 10 and 12 November 2023, attacks and fear of attacks by Non-State Armed Groups in Macomia district (Litandacua and Novo Cabo Delgado localities) triggered 801 individual displacements within the district. Reported families have taken shelter within resettlement sites and host communities in Changane, Nanga A, and Napulubo bairros.

Assessments team record 139 families/520 individuals displaced within Nanga A Relocation Site alone. An estimate of 35 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been identified with vulnerabilities. An estimated 439 were children under 18 years old. Owing to prevailing security concerns reported by displaced families, intentions on duration of their stay in sites and host communities remains uncertain. Movements in the region continue to be dynamic between Chai posto and Macomia Sede. 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 the humanitarian response partners by
disseminating data on IDPs to support effective humanitarian response to the affected population. Information is collected through key informants interviews or direct observation. This alert provides basic information on displacements, and additional information can be shared upon request.
