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 23 October 2021, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 14,195 households (HH) (85,170 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once. Since the beginning of 2021, DTM also identified 845 displaced households who left their locations of displacement and either moved back to their place of origin or another location. Between 17 and 23 October 2021, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 759 households (4,554 individuals) displaced at least once. The top three districts of the top three governorates that saw the highest number of displacements were: • Marib (424 HH) – Marib City (253 HH), Marib (104 HH), Al Jubah (62 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate were internal. • Shabwah (167 HH) – Ataq (154 HH), Nisab (13 HH) districts. Most displacements in the governorate were internal. • Abyan (46 HH) – Sibah (46 HH) district. Most displacements in the governorate originated from Al Bayda and Abyan.
