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 2 October 2021, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 11,806 households (HH) (70,836 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.


Since the beginning of 2021, DTM also identified 622 displaced households who left their locations of displacement and either moved back to their place of origin or another location.


Between 26 September and 02 October 2021, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 556 households (3,336 individuals) displaced at least once. The top three districts of the top three governorates that saw the highest number of displacements were:


  • Marib (445 HH) – Marib City (245 HH), Al Jubah (140 HH), Marib (60 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate were internal.
  • Taizz (34 HH) – Al Misrakh (8 HH), Mawza (7 HH), Salh (5 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Taizz and Al Hudaydah.
  • Al Dhale'e (22 HH) – Ad Dhale'e (10 HH), Qa'atabah (9 HH), Al Azariq (3 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Al Dhale'e and Ibb.


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

  • Marib (462 HH) – Harib (251 HH), Al Jubah (196 HH), Rahabah (11 HH) districts.
  • Abyan (17 HH) – Lawdar (16 HH), Zingibar (1 HH) districts.
