From 2 — 23 March 2021, the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) deployed its Emergency Site Assessment to capture internal displacement related to the Northern Ethiopia Crisis. This multisectoral location assessment assesses the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and collects basic information on the multisectoral needs of IDPs at site level.
In this fourth round, 1,064,176 IDPs (235,882 households)* were found to be displaced across 178 sites in Tigray, Amhara and Afar regions. 1,000,052 IDPs (218,246 households)* were found in Tigray region, 45,343 IDPs (8,325 households) in Afar region and 18,781 IDPs (9,311 households) in Amhara region. As access constraints and insecurity were considerable challenges, please note that these displacement figures are not reflective of the displacement total for the Northern Ethiopia Crisis but rather are the number of IDPs identified in the 96 sites that were accessible this round.
