Burundi - Emergency Tracking - 30 Décembre 2018 au 5 Janvier 2019
Activated on an ad hoc basis, the DTM Emergency Tracking provides early field reports at the beginning of a complex crisis, allowing IOM to gather, consolidate and disseminate baseline information on displacement and return figures at the onset of a newly emerging crisis. The DTM Emergency Tracking relies heavily on information provided by RARTs or partners within the humanitarian community about an unfolding situation. The Emergency Tracking gathers data through IOM Iraq’s extended network of key informants, who provide basic information on the new displacement, be it of IDPs or returnees, or both, including numbers, location and shelter types. While IOM DTM strives to provide best estimates, the Emergency Tracking aims to be a quick monitoring tool with real-time data turnover ranging from 24 to 72 hours following its activation. As displaced population movements are highly fluid, these emergency early reports require continuous verification through multiple sources and data triangulation. Eventually, the DTM Emergency Tracking data feeds into the displacement data within the two-week DTM Master Lists reporting cycle and, therefore, data will be later verified and assessed through other components of the DTM methodology.
