In response to the need for accurate and up-to-date information on human mobility and forced displacement in north-east Nigeria, IOM activated its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) to support the Government and the humanitarian community with
multi-layered data on the numbers, trends, status, locations and needs of populations affected by the on-going conflict in north-east Nigeria. Round 39 of assessment was conducted from 30 August to 15 October 2021.

During Round 39, IDP assessments were conducted in 2,381 locations (up from 2,380 locations in Round 38). Assessed locations included 309 camps and camp-like settlements (no change since Round 38) and 2,072 locations where internally displaced persons lived among host communities (up from 2,071 in Round 38). The purpose was to better understand the gaps in services provided and the needs of the affected population. Site assessments included an analysis of sector-wide needs, shelter and non-food items, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food and nutrition, health, education, livelihood, security, communication and protection.

This dashboard presents key findings from these site assessments. DTM identified 879,237 IDPs living in the 309 assessed sites. Eighty-one per cent of IDPs were women and children, 67 per cent of IDPs cited tarpaulin as the most needed shelter material, while 47 per cent of IDPs cited blanket/mat as the most needed NFI, 14 per cent of IDPs do not have access to regular medication, and 23 per cent of IDPs do not have access to food support. In 89 per cent of the sites surveyed, IDPs cited food as the main unmet need.
