IOM Yemen DTM’s Rapid Displacement Tracking (RDT) tool collects data on numbers of households forced to flee on a daily basis from their locations of origin or displacement, allowing for regular reporting of new displacements in terms of numbers, geography, and needs. It also tracks Returnees who returned to their location of origin.


From 01 January 2021 to 9 October 2021 , IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 12,413 households (HH) (74,478 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.


Since the beginning of 2021, DTM also identified  624 displaced households who left their locations of displacement and either moved back to their place of origin or another location.


Between 03 and 09 October 2021, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 504 households (3,024 individuals) displaced at least once. The top three districts of the top three governorates that saw the highest number of displacements were:


  • Marib (284 HH) – Marib City (163 HH), Marib (77 HH), Al Jubah (41 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate were internal.
  • Abyan (84 HH) – Sibah (51 HH), Lawdar (33 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Al Bayda and Abyan.
  • Shabwah (44 HH) – Osaylan (34 HH), Ataq (10 HH) districts. All displacements in the governorate were internal.


Most displacements resulted from the increased conflict in the following governorates and districts.

  • Marib (262 HH) – Al Jubah (164 HH), Harib (94 HH), Rahabah (3 HH) districts.
  • Shabwah (55 HH) – Osaylan (45 HH), Bayhan (10 HH) districts.
