11 Apr 2022 Nigeria Download

Round 9 of DTM data collection in Nigeria’s north-west and north-central geopolitical zones was conducted between 16
November and 30 December 2021. During the assessments, DTM deployed teams of enumerators to conduct assessments
in 859 wards (down from the 861 wards that were assessed in Round 8 of DTM assessments), located in 177 LGAs (down
from 178 LGAs in Round 8). Eight states were covered, including Benue, Nasarawa and Plateau (north-central) and Kaduna,
Kano, Sokoto, Katsina and Zamfara (north-west).
DTM enumerators conducted assessments in 1,654 locations (a decrease of 10 locations compared to Round 8), including
1,557 (94%) locations where IDPs were residing among host communities and 97 (6%) locations categorized as camps/camplike
settings. In Round 8 of assessments, 1,563 locations where IDPs lived among host communities and 101 camps/camp-like
settings were assessed. During these assessments, data was collected on numbers, living conditions and multisectoral needs
of displaced populations.
DTM activities in Nigeria’s north-central and north-west zones targeted IDPs and aimed to gain a better understanding
of displacement figures and trends, living conditions of the affected populations and the needs and vulnerabilities of these
populations. The population categories are defined in this report as follows:
• An Internally Displaced Person (IDP) is “a person who has been forced or obliged to flee or to leave his or her home or place
of habitual residence, in particular as a result of, or in order to avoid the effects of armed conflict, situations of generalized
violence, violations of human rights or natural or human-made disasters, and who has not crossed an internationally
recognized State border.”
