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 29 February 2020, DTM captured 1,735,481 IDPs (323,589 IDP households) in 1,237 sites. The biggest causes of displacement were conflict which displaced 1,170,659 IDPs, followed by drought which affected 381,426 IDPs and seasonal flood which affected 73,736 IDPs. VAS was carried out between 1 February to 12 March 2020 and covered 1,150 villages across 8 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 1,396,764 returning IDPs, 10,657 IDPs, 5,408 returned migrants and 1,265,476 host community members were tracked through VAS.
