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, causes of displacement, geography and needs. It also tracks returnees who returned to their location of origin.
During the reporting period, Between 24 and 30 October 2021, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 592 households (3,552 individuals) displaced at least once. Conflict was the main reason for displacement, accounting for 99 per cent (587 HH) of the total, followed by economic reasons, accounting for one per cent (5 HH). From 01 January 2021 to 30 October 2021, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 14,876 households (HH) (89,256 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.
Some 89 HH displaced in the previous reporting period (17 – 23 October 2021) in governorates of Marib, Al Maharah, Taiz, and Aden were only identified in the current reporting period. This figure has been added to the cumulative displacement total recorded from the beginning of the year.
