The DTM Emergency Event Tracking (EET) tool is deployed with funding from the European Union and the German Federal Foreign Office to track sudden displacement and population movements. Activated on a need basis, EET utilises a broad network of community focal points (CFPs) to capture best estimates of the affected population presence, with one focal point interviewed per community.
On 12 October 2021, DTM teams activated Round 2 of the EET in Afghanistan to monitor the displacement of individuals and conditions of communities following episodes of drought and rapid political changes.
This report intends to provide a snapshot of the current displacement situation based on the latest and best available information from the EET up until 26 October. It also serves to fill information gaps and support humanitarian operations on the ground while more comprehensive data and analysis are being produced. It is not meant to provide comparative trend analysis or an overall picture of the displacement situation in the country.
From 12 to 26 October 2021, DTM teams assessed 3,701 communities in 184 districts across 29 provinces in Afghanistan. The data presented in the report refers to this assessment period.
