This Multi-Sectorial Location Assessment (MSLA) report, which presents findings from the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Round 8 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 10 January and 15 February 2022 in close coordination with provincial government and Instituto Nacional de Gestão e Redução do Risco de Desastres (INGD) partners, and presents trends from 66 assessed sites hosting internally displaced persons across nine districts in Cabo Delgado, 3 sites in Niassa, and 2 site in Nampula.
In total, 216,413 internally displaced persons (IDPs) (an increase of 1% since the previous round) or 53,819 households were mapped living in sites assessed during this MSLA. Reported fi gures, however, exclude displaced individuals living in host community settings. According to DTM Round 15 Baseline, as of February 2022, an estimated 702,735 IDPs were identified living in both host communities and sites in Cabo Delgado, 76,568 IDPs in Nampula, and 3,552 IDPs in Niassa.
