Summary

DTM teams piloted its first Situation Assessment in the Red Sea state in 33 locations to enhance and provide accurate and up-to-date demographic and protection data on displaced populations within the Red Sea state. As DTM is expanding its operation into eastern Sudan, this Situation Assessment presents the first overview on the situation of internally displaced persons (IDPs) affected by conflicts in the Red Sea state over the past years.

DTM Situation Assessments are implemented to collect data on populations in non-emergency settings or protracted situations caused by conflict or natural disaster. As a subcomponent of the Mobility Tracking methodology in Sudan (see Round Three), Situation Assessments utilise a broad network of key informants to provide an overview of the context by capturing best estimates of the affected population presence per area – a useful tool for humanitarian response planning and design.
