Summary

In Afghanistan, DTM employs the Baseline Mobility Assessment tool, designed to track mobility, determine the population sizes, locations and geographic distribution of forcibly displaced, return and migrant populations, reasons for displacement, places of origin, and times of displacement, as well as basic demographics, vulnerabilities and priority needs. Data is collected at the settlement level, through community focus group discussions with key informants and direct observations.

As of 31 March 2021, 34 provinces, 401 districts and 12,882 settlements have been assessed, including interviews with 77,019 key informants. Between 2012 and March 2021, 4,359,961 returnees and 4,927,639 IDPs currently living in host communities were identified.
