This Multi-Sectorial Location Assessment (MSLA) report, which presents findings from the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Round 12 assessments, aims to enhance understanding of the extent of internal displacements and the needs of affected populations in conflict-affected and disaster-affected districts of Mozambique. Data was collected between 12 - 30 July 2023 in close coordination with provincial government and Instituto Nacional de Gestão e Redução do Risco de Desastres (INGD) partners, and presents trends from 191 assessed sites hosting internally displaced persons across Northern (Cabo Delgado 94 sites, Nampula 2 sites, Niassa 7 sites) and Central Mozambique (Manica 35 sites, Sofala 36 sites, Tete 4 sites, Zambezia 13 sites).

In total, 392,598 internally displaced persons (IDPs). This is much higher than MSLA Round 11, as all sites in Northern and Central Mozambique are now being analysed jointly. Reported figures, however, exclude displaced individuals living in host community settings. According to DTM Round 19 Mobility Tracking Report, as of August, an estimated 850,599 were identified living in both host communities and sites (668,939 IDPs in Northern Mozambique, and 181,660 IDPs in Central Mozambique).
