The objective of the National Monitoring System (NMS) in Ukraine, drawing from IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) approach, is to support the Government of Ukraine in collecting and analyzing information on the socio-economic characteristics of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and IDP households, as well as the challenges they face. IOM adapted the DTM, a system designed to regularly capture, process and disseminate information on displacement situations, to the Ukrainian context. The NMS provides a better understanding of the evolving movements and locations, numbers, vulnerabilities and needs of displaced populations in Ukraine.
The survey collected information on on socio-economic characteristics of IDPs at individual and household levels, including trends and movement intentions, employment, livelihood opportunities, access to social services and assistance needs in 24 oblasts of Ukraine and the city of Kyiv.
Since the NMS Round 9, data collection was expanded based on coordination with relevant counterparts, including the Food Security and Livelihood Cluster and the Health Cluster, to incorporate information on additional challenges faced by IDPs and returnees.
