This Multi-Sectorial Location Assessment (MSLA) report, which presents findings from the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Round 11 assessments, 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 16 February and 16 March 2023 in close coordination with provincial government and Instituto Nacional de Gestão e Redução do Risco de Desastres (INGD) partners, and presents trends from 92 assessed sites hosting internally displaced persons across Cabo Delgado, 4 sites in Niassa, and 2 sites in Nampula.

In total, 290,401 internally displaced persons (IDPs) (an increase of 5% since the previous round) or 80,295 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 18 Mobility Tracking Report, as of April, an estimated 834,304 IDPs were identified living in both host communities and sites (781,679 IDPs in Cabo Delgado, 48,635 IDPs in Nampula, and 3,990 IDPs in Niassa).
