14 Dec 2021 Yemen 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 27 November 2021, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 21,392 households (HH) (128,352 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.


Since the beginning of 2021, DTM also identified 3,814 displaced households who left their locations of displacement and either moved back to their place of origin or another location.


Between 21 and 27 November 2021, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 259 households (1,554 individuals) displaced at least once. The top three districts of the top three governorates that saw the highest number of displacements were:


  • Marib (91 HH) – Marib City (59 HH), Marib (32 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Marib and Shabwah.
  • Al Hodeidah (55 HH) – Hays (55 HH) district. Most displacements in the governorate were internal.
  • Taiz (46 HH) – Al Makha (10 HH), Jabal Habashi (7 HH), Al Qahirah (7 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Al Hodeidah and Taiz.


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

  • Al Hodeidah (82 HH) – Hays (37 HH), Al Jarrahi (21 HH), Jabal Ras (6 HH) districts.
  • Marib (66 HH) – Al Jubah (25 HH), Sirwah (14 HH), Harib (14 HH) districts.
