IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) programme seeks to understand where affected people are, their most urgent needs, and their intentions for the coming period.
In 2023, the Government of Sweden has commissioned to DTM to conduct a survey with persons who left Ukraine after February 2022. The purpose of the survey was to better understand needs and plans for the future, and main challenges encountered since arrival in Sweden.
