In order to capture the displacement and mobility dynamics in Ethiopia, DTM Ethiopia's National Displacement Report combines its findings from its Site Assessment (SA) in Section 1 and findings from the Village Assessment Survey (VAS) in Section 2. Through the Site Assessment which was conducted from 1 to 30 July 2019, DTM captured 1,642,458 IDPs (321,537 IDP households) in 1,163 sites. The biggest causes of displacement were conflict which displaced 1,089,856 IDPs, followed by drought which affected 424,845 IDPs and seasonal flood which affected 35,995 IDPs. VAS was carried out between 17 to 26 June 2019 and covered 659 villages across 4 regions. VAS is targeted at locations with high returns to evaluate the absorption capacity of the village with a focus on accessibility of services, livelihoods and reintegration. A total of 816,813 returning IDPs, 148,309 IDPs, 13,804 returned migrants and 866,499 host community members were tracked through VAS.
