Ethiopia — Emergency Site Assessment 6 (3 — 24 May 2021)
From 3 — 24 May 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 sixth round, a total of 1,990,168 IDPs (424,342 households) have been identified across 301 sites thus far. 1,918,220 IDPs (404,325 households) were found in Tigray region, 49,643 IDPs (9,165 households) in Afar region and 22,305 IDPs (10,852 households) in Amhara region. However, it should be noted that access constraints and insecurity continue to pose as challenges to the data collection process.
