Summary

The DTM Emergency Tracking Tool (ETT) is deployed to track and to collect information on large and sudden population movements, provide frequent updates on the scale of displacement and quantify the affected population when needed. As a sub-component of the Mobility Tracking methodology in Nigeria, ETT utilises direct observation and a broad network of key informants to capture best estimates of the affected population per location, enabling targeted humanitarian response planning.
Between 12 and 18 September 2022, a total of 1,688 new arrivals were recorded in locations in Adamawa and Borno States. The new arrivals were recorded at locations in Askira/Uba, Bama, Dikwa, Gwoza, Monguno and Kala Balge Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the most conflict-affected state of Borno and in Fufore, Gombi, Hong, Maiha, Michika, Mubi South, Song, Numan and Yola South LGAs of Adamawa State.
ETT assessments identified the following movement triggers: poor living conditions (342 individuals or 20%), floods (323 individuals or 19%), seasonal farming (275 individuals or 16%), improved security (266 individuals or 16%), camp closure (195 individuals or 12%), military operations (164 individuals or 10%), family re-unification (85 individuals or 5%) and access to humanitarian support (38 individuals or 2%).
