Ethiopia — Thematic Paper: Village Assessment Survey Durable Solutions Index Report 1

The DTM Ethiopia Village Assessment Survey Durable Solutions Index Report measures the progress of returning IDP populations towards overcoming displacement-related vulnerabilities by examining specific criteria outlined within the IASC Framework on Durable Solutions for Internally Displaced Persons. The composite index is made up of 57 indicators from DTM Ethiopia's Village Assessment Survey and treated as sub-criteria in measuring 6 criteria of the IASC Framework. In this report, the index is applied to 10 villages to measure progress towards overcoming displacement-related vulnerabilities.

Ethiopia — National Displacement Report 5 (June — July 2020)

In order to capture the displacement and return dynamics in Ethiopia, DTM Ethiopia's National Displacement Report combines findings from its Site Assessment (SA) in Section 1 and findings from the Village Assessment Survey (VAS) in Section 2. The Site Assessment tracks the number and multisectoral needs of internally displaced persons (IDPs), while the Village Assessment Survey tracks the number of IDPs who are returning to their communities and their multisectoral needs. VAS is also used to evaluate the absorption capacity of villages receiving returns with a focus on accessibility of services, livelihoods and reintegration. Notably, the impact of COVID-19 on IDPs and villages hosting returning IDPs was also evaluated this round. 

Through the Site Assessment which was conducted from 1 June to 5 July 2020, DTM captured 1,820,811 IDPs (329,084 households) in 1,297 sites across the 11 regions of Ethiopia. The biggest causes of displacement were conflict which displaced 1,233,557 IDPs (68%), followed by drought which displaced 351,062 IDPs (19%), seasonal floods which displaced 104,696 IDPs (6%) and flash floods which displaced 50,093 IDPs (3%). VAS was carried out during the same period and covered 1,205 villages across 8 regions. A total of 1,400,892 returning IDPs, 10,603 IDPs, 11,595 returned migrants and 1,226,690 host community members were tracked through VAS.

Zimbabwe — Tropical Cyclone Idai Return Assessment [Manicaland] (24-30 April)

Tropical Cyclone Idai made landfall in Zimbabwe on 15 March 2019 and the country experienced floods and sustained heavy rains which left a trail of destruction including shelter, lives and livelihoods mostly in Manicaland and Masvingo provinces. From 24 to 30 April 2020, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) team in coordination with the Government of Zimbabwe (GoZ) conducted Return Assessments in 64 villages across Buhera, Chimanimani and Chipinge Districts of Manicaland province. The following report is an analysis of the current situation of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the affected villages. The survey gathered information regarding shelter arrangements, livelihood conditions and ways of promoting the safe, dignified and sustainable return and reintegration of those who had been displaced by the cyclone. This report provides an overview of the key results and highlight elements of the data that should be considered for subsequent programming and intervention.
