Event Tracking

Sudan — Emergency Event Tracking Report - Ar Rusayris, Blue Nile (Update 009)

The DTM Emergency Event Tracking (EET) is deployed to track sudden displacement and population movements, provide more frequent updates on the scale of displacement, and quantify the affected population when needed. As a subcomponent of the new Mobility Tracking methodology in Sudan (Round Four), and activated on a need basis, EET utilises a broad network of key informants to capture best estimates of the affected population presence per location – a useful tool for humanitarian response planning and design.

Within this reporting period, 86 per cent of the recorded movements represent individuals displaced for

IOM teams observed an average of 1,791 individuals arriving at different locations within the reporting period (09 - 15 November, please see below for more information). Movements in the region continue to be dynamic between host communities. Cumulatively, from the first attacks in Namuno on 29 October till date, an estimated 27,244 first-time individual displacements have been observed by DTM monitoring teams. The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) - Movement Alert is to collect information on large and sudden population movements, and to provide support to the humanitarian response partners by disseminating data on IDPs to support effective humanitarian response to the affected population. Information is collected through key informants interviews or direct observation. This dashboard provides basic information on displacements, and additional information can be shared upon request.

Nigeria — Flood Rapid Needs Assessment Dashboard — Kogi State (15 November 2022)

The rainy season in Nigeria typically occurs annually with the greatest concentration of precipitation between the months of June and September. Many states in Nigeria have been affected by unprecedented heavy rainfalls and floods have devastated various communities. Infrastructure, crops, and shelters have been damaged which led to decimated livelihoods and the displacement of numerous households. Over the past months, climate variability and the release of excess water from the Lagdo dam in northern Cameroon, have worsened the flood situation and has resulted in a renewed situation of widespread displacement across Nigeria.
Between 28 October and 1 November 2022, DTM, in collaboration with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the Kogi State Emergency Management Agency (KGSEMA) and the Nigerian Red Cross Society (NCRS) identified 20 locations in Kogi State that were affected by the floods and/or received IDPs that are currently displaced as a result of the floods.

In the eight (8) Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Kogi state that were assessed, DTM identified 19,439 individuals in 3,504 households that were affected by the floods. These individuals included both IDPs that were living in camp-like settings and residents impacted by the floods but remained in their communities.

RDC — Nord Kivu: Analyse synthétique sur la crise M23 (12 novembre 2022)

Depuis novembre 2021, les attaques de l’ex-groupe rebelle M23 ont repris et se sont multipliées contre les forces armées congolaises (FARDC) dans l’Est de la RDC. Ces affrontements se sont encore intensifiés depuis mars 2022, à la faveur desquels le M23 s'est emparé en juin 2022 de la ville de Bunagana, située à la frontière avec l'Ouganda, ainsi que d'autres localités voisines dans les régions de Jomba, Bweza, Kisigari et Busanza, en territoire de Rutshuru. Fin octobre 2022, les anciens rebelles du M23 ont étendu leur emprise après plusieurs offensives, élargissant leur contrôle sur l'ensemble de la chefferie de Bwisha, y compris la capitale du territoire et la ville de Kiwanja, avec des plans présumés d'extension sur l'ensemble du territoire. Dans le territoire de Rutshuru, ces attaques ont déplacé 234 488 personnes (40 027 ménages) depuis les zones de combat (groupements de Jomba, Bweza et Kisigari) vers des zones considérées comme sécurisées dans les territoires de Nyiragongo, Rutshuru et Lubero, notamment les zones de santé de Nyiragongo, Bambo, Kayna et Kibirizi.
