Nigeria — Transhumance Tracking Tool Report — Early Warning Dashboard 4 (April 2022)

In recent years, competing claims to natural resources have grown with reports of violent clashes between farmers and herders communities in Adamawa state of Nigeria. The TTT Early Warning monitors transhumant movements and identifies the pattern of alerts that are related to the use of natural resources between farmers and herders. The TTT data collection engages a network of selected Key informants from the Community Response Network (CRN) and LGA-based team leads.

During the month of April 2022, the TTT Early Warning tool captured 285 alerts. The triangulated alerts include 257 (90%) events and 28 (10%) massive/late movements. The recent event alerts were compounded by the rise in the incidences of the burning of farmlands after harvest to create a scarcity of pasture for grazing as well as to discourage the herders grazing on farmland, potentially leading to conflict in the LGAs such as Demsa.

The event alerts spread across 73 per cent of the wards in the 5 operational LGAs. The percentages of the event alerts in each LGAs are Demsa (35%), Numan (24%), Lamurde (18%), Girei (9%), and Mayo-Belwa (5%). For instance, in Lamurde and Numan LGAs, there are reported cases of crop destruction and underage-herders grazing respectively. It is also reported that 9 per cent of the events resulted in casualties or injuries, while less than one per cent of events led to displacements of populations. The highest number of casualties or injuries are reported from Girei followed by Demsa and Lamurde LGAs.

The early warning data indicated some localities where the potential event could occur. As shown on the map, Demsa, Fufore, Jada, Ganye, Hong, Mayo-Belwa, Numan, Toungo, and Yola South LGAs are the potential risk areas in relation to late and massive movements. In Mayo-Belwa LGA more movement alerts were reported than other operational LGAs, mainly because Mayo-Belwa is traversed by the major North-south axis transhumance corridor. In addition, transhumant groups use the Gongoshi grazing reserve as a resting point on their way to and from Toungo LGA where they stay during dry season grazing.

The reported alerts were in many cases, identified, discussed, and on many instances intervened upon during the Community Response Network (CRN), Community Security Architecture Dialogue (CSAD), and Peace Architecture Dialogue (PAD) meetings in order to diffuse escalating tensions and conflicts in the affected

Yemen — Rapid Displacement Tracking Update (01 January - 31 March 2022)

IOM Yemen DTM’s Rapid Displacement Tracking (RDT) tool collects data on estimated numbers of

households forced to _ee on a daily basis from their locations of habitual residence or displacement,

allowing for regular reporting of new displacements1 in terms of estimated numbers, causes of

displacement, geography and needs. It also tracks returnees who returned to their location of

habitual residence.

 

During the reporting period, between 1 January and 31 March 2022, IOM Yemen DTM tracked a

cumulative 4,950 households (HHs) (approximately 29,700 individuals2) that experienced

displacement at least once. Since the beginning of the year, the number of tracked new instances of

displpacement has been declining steadily.

 

Safety and security concerns as a result of the con_ict were the main reason for displacement,

accounting for 99 per cent (14,245 HHs) of the total, followed by economic reasons related to

con_ict, accounting for one per cent (194 HHs).

 

The majority of people moved into/within the following governorates and districts:

  • Al Hodeidah (1461 HHs) – Hays (1248 HHs), Al Khukhah (213 HHs) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Al Hodeidah and Taiz.
  • Marib (1019 HHs) – Marib City (668 HHs), Marib (217 HHs), Harib (134 HHs) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Marib and Al Jawf.
  • Shabwah (814 HHs) – Ataq (266 HHs), Osaylan (240 HHs), Ayn (145 HHs) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Shabwah and Marib.

Yemen — Annual Rapid Displacement Tracking Report (2021)

DTM recorded 26,259 household displacements (representing 157,554 individuals) who fled, mainly due to conflict (25,258 HHs), across 13 governorates, 94 districts and 948 locations in Yemen during 2021.

This data only represents displacement events in 2021 and does not include people that were displaced in previous years and are still displaced to date. It should also be noted that the total number of identified household displacements (26,259 HHs) in 2021 cannot be added to the total stock of IDPs of 2020 since it contains an unknown number of duplicates (multiple displacements of the same HH) and returns (e.g., HHs recorded as displaced in January 2021 might have returned the following month). 

Similarly, in 2020 DTM identified 28,734 households (172,404 individuals) who were displaced across 13 governorates, 118 districts and 1,249 locations. The slight drop in IDP numbers in 2021 compared to 2020 is most likely due to intensified barriers to movement brought on by the shifting frontlines, worsening security situation and increased access constraints. The nine per cent per cent decrease in observed household displacement instances should not be interpreted as indicative of an improved security situation. On the contrary, in 2021, 91 per cent of IDPs cited conflict as the main reason for displacement, compared to 83 per cent in 2020. Persons displaced during 2020 were also fleeing due to natural disasters, including torrential rains and flooding, which accounted for 12 per cent of displacements.

The first COVID-19 case in Yemen was reported in April 2020, followed by precautionary movement restrictions, which directly limited IDPs’ access to humanitarian assistance. COVID-19 related movement restrictions prevented data collection in some areas and may have contributed to the decreased levels of displacement observed in 2020 and 2021.

Nevertheless, it remains clear that causes unrelated to the pandemic – including conflict, disaster and the challenging socio-economic and political situation – continued to contribute to displacement through 2020 and 2021.
