Summary

IOM Yemen DTM’s Rapid Displacement Tracking (RDT) tool collects data on estimated 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 estimated numbers, geography, and needs. It also tracks returnees who returned to their location of origin.

From 1 January to 3 September 2022, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 8,636 households (HH) (51,816 Individuals) who experienced displacement at least once.

Between 28 August and 3 September 2022, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 52 households (312 individuals) displaced at least once. The majority of people moved into/within the following governorates and districts:

  • Marib (31 HHs) – Marib City (19 HHs), Harib (6 HHs), Marib (6 HHs) districts.     Most displacements in the governorate originated from Shabwah and Marib.
  • Ad Dali (11 HHs) – Ad Dali (9 HHs), Qatabah (2 HHs) districts. All displacements in the governorate were internal.
  • Hadramawt (5 HHs) – Al Abr (5 HHs) district. All displacements in the governorate originated from Marib.
