This Multi-Sectorial Location Assessment (MSLA) report, which presents findings from the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Round 10 assessment, aims to enhance understanding of the extent of internal displacements and the needs of affected populations in conflict-affected districts of Northern Mozambique. Data was collected between 17 October and 17 November 2022 in close coordination with provincial government and Instituto Nacional de Gestão e Redução do Risco de Desastres (INGD) partners and presents trends from 87 assessed sites (including 5 additional sites not assessed) hosting internally displaced persons across fourteen districts in Cabo Delgado, 3 sites in Niassa, and 2 site in Nampula.

In total, 294,941 internally displaced persons (IDPs) (an increase of 6% since the previous round) or 80,437 households were mapped living in sites assessed during this MSLA. Reported figures, however, exclude displaced individuals living in host community settings. According to DTM Round 17 Mobility Tracking Report, as of November, an estimated 935,130 IDPs were identified living in both host communities and sites in Cabo Delgado, 89,016 IDPs in Nampula, and 4,597 IDPs in Niassa.
