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 5 June 2021, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 5,905 households (HH) (35,430 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.


Between 30 May 2021 and 05 June 2021, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 108 households (648 individuals) displaced at least once. The highest number of displacements were seen in:


  • Al Dhale'e (41 HH) – Ad Dhale'e (28 HH), Qa'atabah (13 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Al Dhale'e and Taizz.
  • Taizz (36 HH) – Al Mukha (23 HH), Jabal Habashy (5 HH), Al Misrakh (3 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Taizz and Dhamar.
  • Marib (13 HH) – Marib City (10 HH), Marib (3 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Marib and Taizz.


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

  • Taizz (40 HH) – Maqbanah (17 HH), Hayfan (11 HH), Mawza (3 HH) districts.
  • Al Dhale'e (27 HH) – Qa'atabah (18 HH), Al Husha (9 HH) districts.
  • Al Hudaydah (14 HH) – Hays (5 HH), Zabid (4 HH), Bayt Al Faqiah (2 HH) districts.


Some 19 HH were displaced in the previous reporting period, which covered 23 May - 29 May 2021.  However, they were only identified in the current period and so, this figure has been added to the cumulative displacement total recorded from the beginning of the year.


Since the beginning of 2021, DTM also identified 481 displaced households who left their locations of displacement and either moved back to their place of origin or another location.
