Summary

Fear of attacks and subsequent confirmed attacks in Mueda, Quissanga, Memba and Metuge districts by Non-State Armed Groups triggered 4,198 individual displacement movements within Chiure, Ibo, Macomia, Mecufi, Metuge, Montepuez, Mueda, Muidumbe, Namuno and Quissanga. An estimate of 168 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been identified with vulnerabilities. 79% of these movements are arrivals in Metuge, 9% in Quissanga, and 7% in Mueda. New arrivals recorded within the reporting period map 2,707 individuals predominantly moving into displacement sites across Chiure (Nahele), Metuge (Manono, Bandar and Namuapala), Montepuez (Marcune and Ujama), Mueda (Ed. Mondlane) and Muidumbe (Estaleiro). 80% of recorded movements represent individuals displaced for the first time, 2% for the second time and 18% represent at least three times. IOM teams observed an average of 4,198 individuals arriving at different locations within the reporting period (21 - 26 September) (please see below charts for further information).

Data collected from 1 June - 27 September, 2022 shows a cumulative of 75,062 individuals displaced for the first time due to attacks/fear of attack. Movements in the region remain dynamic between host communities and displacement sites. The objective of the Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) - Movement Alert is to collect information on large and sudden population movements, and to provide support to the humanitarian response partners by disseminating data on IDPs to support effective humanitarian response to the affected population. Information is collected through key informants interviews or direct observation. This dashboard provides basic information on displacements, and additional information can be shared upon request.
