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 28 August 2021 , IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 9,158 households (HH) (54,948 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.
