In the first eleven months of 2020, conflict (82%) and natural disasters (13%) have resulted most of displacements, particularly in Marib, Al Hudaydah, Al Dhale'e, Tiaz, Al Jawf, and Hadramaut governorates. Economic conditions, Health, COVID-19 and other factors caused rest of 5% displacements.
From 01 January 2020 to 26 December 2020, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 28,659 households (HH) (171,954 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.
