As part of its fourth round, the Displacement Tracking matrix (DTM) conducted a Return Intention Survey targeting IDPs in the Far North Region of Cameroon.

El presente documento se base en los datos del DTM Ronda 4, incluyendo aportes de entidades del gobierno y sectores de las agencias de Naciones Unidas.

Este documento incluye los perfiles de 25 refugios despues del terremoto ocurrido en la costa de Ecuador con epicentro en Pedernales y subsecuentes réplicas.

A la date du 30 juillet 2016, les partenaires de la CMP ont comptabilisé 52 028 personnes rapatriées, ce qui correspond à une augmentation de 832 personnes par rapport aux données Août 2016 (51 196 Rapatriés).

DTM identified 181,215 internally displaced persons, 14,871 unregistered refugees and 32,023  returnees. 13% of the displaced population was displaced by flooding and other natural disasters while 84% were displaced by conflict.

Flow monitoring points are placed at known migrant passing points along the Niger migratory route. Data is collected daily at FMPs to inform migrant movements and profiles. The data collected provides a snapshot of migrant movements through the region.

Les points de suivi des flux sont placés dans des endroits de passages sur la route migratoire du Niger. Les données sont collectés chaque jour dans les FMP our informer les mouvements et profils migratoires et offrir une apércu des mouvements migratoires dans la région.

DTM Libya's Mobility Tracking Report 5 has recorded a reduction in the number of IDPs present in Libya (Benghazi in particular). The number of returnees continues to increase, especially in Benghazi, Derna, Gwalesh and Kikla.

This dashboard is an overview of IDP populations and camp locations recorded in July and August 2016 across: Bamingui Bangoran.

This dashboard illustrates the key findings from Libya's Mobility Tracking Report 5 . DTM identified 348,372 IDPs of which 51% were female and 49% were male. DTM also recorded 310,265 returnees: 196,100 from 2015 and 114,095 from 2016.

DTM recorded 59,758 IDPs (12,472 households) in seven provinces. Most IDPs were found in Makamba (13,255 IDPs or 2,651 households). 58% of IDPs reported socio-political reasons for their displacement and 40% were displaced by natural disasters. 2% fled for 'other' reasons.

Con el fin de obtener información actualizada sobre las condiciones de los sitios en los que se encuentran albergadas las personas desplazadas, se realzó la evaluación DTM Ronda 4 entre el 16 y 22 de agosto por diez grupos de dos personas en cada equipo móvil de OIM, a través de observación direc

From 25th July to 2 August 2016, the DTM team identified and planned to visit 80 potential displacement sites across the affected districts.

Pendant le mois de juillet 2016, les données ont été collectées sur les personnes déplacées internes au sein de sept (7) provinces avec des informations fournies par 1,774 informateurs-clé dans les provinces ciblées. Les données des collines ont été collectées dans six (6) provinces

The document contains 21 dashboards of 21 governorates. The dashboards contain information on total governorate population, IDP and returnee numbers, demographic data, duration of displacement and needs.
