Papua New Guinea — Site Assessment: Southern Highlands Province (October 2018)
Following the earthquake that hit the Highlands region in February 2018, IOM deployed the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) to track human displacements, as well as identify humanitarian needs for those displaced from their community to care centres or displaced within their community. DTM data has been pivotal in guiding response interventions and planning for recovery among various actors, state and non-state. In past few months, IOM conducted follow up site assessments in 11 sites (Urila, Pongal, Kopa, Kware 1, Lil, Injua, Inte, Humbra, Tindom, Puinz and Hol) to assess the situation of those affected by the earthquake. This dashboard presents findings from the assessments.
