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 31 October and 06 November 2021, IOM Yemen DTM tracked 2,443 households (14,658 individuals) displaced at least once. Conflict was the main reason for displacement, accounting for 99.75 per cent (2,437 HH) of the total, followed by economic reasons, accounting for 0.25 per cent (6 HH). From 01 January 2021 to 6 November 2021, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 18,066 households (HH) (108,396 Individuals) have experienced displacement at least once.
Some 747 HH displaced in the previous reporting period (24 – 30 October 2021) in governorates of Marib, Al Maharah, Abyan, Hadramawt and Al Hodeidah 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.
