22 Sep 2021 Yemen English Download

IOM Yemen DTM’s Rapid Displacement Tracking (RDT) tool collects data on numbers of households forced to flee on a daily basis from their locations of origin or displacement, allowing for regular reporting of new displacements in terms of numbers, geography, and needs. It also tracks Returnees who returned to their location of origin.

 

From 01 January 2021 to 18 September 2021, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 10,516 households (HH) (63,096 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.

                                                                                                                

Since the beginning of 2021, DTM also identified 622 displaced households who left their locations of displacement and either moved back to their place of origin or another location.

                                                                                                                

Between 12 and 18 September 2021, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 328 households (1,968 individuals) displaced at least once. The top three districts of the top three governorates that saw the highest number of displacements were:

                                                                                                                

  • Shabwah (166 HH) – Bayhan (100 HH), Usaylan (55 HH), Merkhah As Sufla (6 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate were internal.
  • Marib (61 HH) – Jabal Murad (32 HH), Marib City (26 HH), Harib (3 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Marib and Al Bayda.
  • Taizz (29 HH) – Al Ma'afer (10 HH), Al Misrakh (9 HH), Mawza (5 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Taizz and Al Hudaydah.

                                                                                                                

Most displacements resulted from the increased conflict in the following governorates and districts.

  • Shabwah (144 HH) – Bayhan (144 HH) district.
