IOM Yemen DTM’s Rapid Displacement Tracking (RDT) tool collects data on estimated 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 estimated numbers, geography, and needs. It also tracks returnees who returned to their location of origin.
From 1 January to 20 May 2023, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 3,222 households (HH) (19,332 Individuals) who experienced displacement at least once.
Between 14 and 20 May 2023, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 30 households (180 individuals) displaced at least once. The majority of people moved into/within the following governorates and districts:
- Ta’iz (19 HHs) – Mawza (9 HHs), Maqbanah (6 HHs), Al Maafer (4 HHs) districts. Most displacements in the governorate were internal.
- Ma’rib (7 HHs) – Harib (7 HHs) district. All displacements in the governorate were internal.
