According to the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine, more than 1.4 million people have been displaced by the conflict in the Donbas and the annexation of Crimea. In order to monitor the situation with IDPs, the IOM Mission in Ukraine has been implementing the ‘National Monitoring System on the Situation of Internally Displaced Persons’ or NMS, since March 2016. The objective of the NMS in Ukraine, drawing from IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) approach, is to support the Government of Ukraine in collecting and analyzing information on the socioeconomic characteristics of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and IDP households, as well as the challenges they face. The NMS provides a better understanding of the evolving movements and locations, numbers, vulnerabilities and needs of displaced populations in Ukraine. The NMS surveys collect information on socioeconomic characteristics of IDPs at individual and household levels, including trends and movement intentions, employment, livelihood opportunities, access to social services and assistance needs in 24 oblasts of Ukraine and the city of Kyiv.

 

The NMS provides a better understanding of the evolving movements, vulnerabilities, and needs of displaced populations in Ukraine. The survey collects information on socioeconomic characteristics of IDPs at individual and household levels, including trends and movement intentions, employment, livelihood opportunities, access to social services and assistance needs in 24 oblasts of Ukraine and the city of Kyiv. The NMS reports are used by a wide range of state and non-state actors in Ukraine to develop strategies and plan activities with real-time data about the most pressing needs of IDPs and host community members in Ukraine. In 2019 the results of the NMS were used in the Ukrainian Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) and for calculating the People in Need (PiN) number.
