DTM’s Rapid Displacement Tracking (RDT) tool collects and reports on numbers of households forced to flee on a daily basis, allowing for regular reporting of new displacements in terms of numbers, geography, and needs.

From 01 January 2021 to 27 February 2021 , IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 2,730 households (HH) (16,380 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.                                                                                  

Since the beginning of 2021, DTM also identified other 063 previously displaced households who left the displaced location and moved to either their place of origin or some other displaced location.
