In response to the need for accurate and up-to-date information on displacement and human mobility resulting from the Boko Haram crisis in the Lake Chad basin, IOM activated its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in Nigeria in July 2014, Chad in January 2015, and Cameroon in November 2015.

DTM identified 22,588 IDP families comprised of 135,528 individuals. The majority of the identified individuals (105,030) originated from Mosul. 118,752 people were living in camps/emergency sites and 14,778 people were living in private settings.
