A total of 29,833 persons (44% male and 56% female) representing 5,719 households were affected by landslides (Bududa), floods (Kapelabyong, Napak, Obongi…), heavy storms/hailstorms (Masaka, Busia & Sironko) and earthquake (Western region – Kasese).

The month of September marked the beginning of SOND rainy season which was characterised by abnormal rains which triggered natural hazards in Uganda.

The month of August received above normal rains in some parts of the country that triggered floods, heavy winds and heavy storms/hailstorms. And drought has also persisted in the cattle corridor from July.

In order to ensure access to accurate and verifiable information on environmental migration in Uganda, the IOM DTM team, in collaboration with MUCCRI, have conducted participatory mobility mapping (PMM) which consisted of a participatory mapping exercise (PME), which is a consultative exercise th

Extreme weather events in July led to the occurrence of the natural disasters like drought, floods and hailstorms in Uganda and human activities also played a big role in the fire outbreaks reported.

In the month of June, there were few hazards reported as the MAM rainy season came to end. Most of the disasters that were reported in the previous months were mostly triggered by rains in most districts of Uganda.

 As the MAM rainy season comes to an end in May, floods and landslides hazards were the major causes of disasters in Uganda and these led to death of three( 3 ) individuals and destruction of many houses and infrastructures in different parts of the country .

The month of April was characterized by MAM rains, and these were a major factor in triggering natural hazards (Floods and Heavy Storms/Hailstorms) in the country as it was reported in eight (8) districts; Kasese, Bundibugyo and Ntoroko in the western region, Kyotera and Rakai in the central regi

Over the years, Uganda has increasingly faced climate change and environmental related problems with the mountainous sub regions of Rwenzori and Elgon being the most hit.

Multiple maps illustrating all outgoing and incoming movements from Uganda tracked by the Displacement Tracking Matrix’s Flow Monitoring project. The maps are comprised of data from different periods, with the earliest from April 2018.
