Iraq — Displacement Report 117 ( July - August 2020 )
Data collection for Round 117 took place in July and August 2020. As of 31 August 2020, DTM identified 4,744,050 returnees (790,675 households), dispersed across 18 governorates, 38 districts and 2,070 locations in Iraq. A higher number of new returnees was recorded in Round 117 (25,920) compared with the number recorded in Round 116 (12,948). The most common governorates that individuals returned to between July and August 2020 include Ninewa (where 27,186 individ- uals were recorded), Salah al-Din (5,712), and Diyala (1,236). As with Rounds 115 and 116, this low return rate is unsurprising, as the Iraqi Government authorities continue to impose mobility restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
