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 1 January 2022, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 26,227 households (HH) (157,362 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.


Since the beginning of 2021, DTM also identified 4,440 displaced households who left their locations of displacement and either moved back to their place of origin or another location.


Between 26 December 2021 and 01 January 2022, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 466 households (2,796 individuals) displaced at least once. The top three governorates and districts where people moved into/within are:


  • Al Jawf (200 HH) – Khab wa Ash Shaf (200 HH) district. All displacements in the governorate were internal.
  • Al Hodeidah(121 HH) – Hays (78 HH), Al Khukhah (43 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Al Hodeidah and Taiz.
  • Marib (86 HH) – Marib City (75 HH), Marib (11 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Marib and Ad Dali.
