The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in partnership with the local authorities deployed the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) from 13 - 18 August 2022, to track and monitor population movements and identify the multi-sectoral needs including protection for the affected population in response to violence and displacement in the Highlands region. DTM has identified a total of 12,818 persons [2,319 households] displaced across 78 locations in Hela and Southern Highlands provinces. Alongside partners, DTM has identified 848 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) [246 IDP households] in two (2) locations in Kompiam district in Enga province. Though fighting is on-going, and the situation remains tense and fluid the assessment teams continue to work closely with partners to gather additional information on the situation of the affected communities.
