Displacement Tracking Matrix Educational Materials

The displacement of people within their own countries is a matter of increased concern worldwide, most especially among those involved in humanitarian work.  

“The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is a system to track and monitor the displacement and population mobility. It is designed to regularly and systematically capture, process and disseminate information to provide a better understanding of the movements and evolving needs of displaced populations, whether on-site or en route.”

The following material provides a brief presentation which can be used to increase partners knowledge an understanding of DTM.
