I. ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT AND SCOPE

Since 2004 the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is IOM’s main operational tool for tracking and monitoring the movements and the evolving needs of displaced populations. It has been systematically deployed in medium to large-scale humanitarian response operations in the last seven years, including in all Level 3 emergencies. During 2019 DTM was active in over 72 countries. To coordinate and support operations implemented by approximately 5,200 staff, the global DTM support team is comprised of 45 specialists across eight locations (Geneva, London, Bangkok, Nairobi, Dakar, Cairo, Vienna and The Hague).

The current outbreak of COVID-19 has affected global mobility in complex and unprecedented ways in the form of various travel restrictions, suspension of air travel and border closures. To better understand this, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) has developed a global mobility database to map these impacts on human mobility, across global, regional and country levels. Furthermore, COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact on vulnerable populations in camps and camp-like settings as well as exacerbated the vulnerabilities of mobile populations who may now be stranded owing to COVID-19 related mobility restrictions. This data is particularly important when addressing specific needs faced by migrants and mobile populations.

The main objective of this internship will be to assist IOM to continue and develop its global workstreams on monitoring the impacts of mobility as a result of COVID-19. This includes work on the following workstreams: Global Mobility Restrictions, Point of Entry Monitoring, Impact on Migrants.

Since 2004 the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is IOM’s main operational tool for tracking and monitoring the movements and the evolving needs of displaced populations. It has been systematically deployed in medium to large-scale humanitarian response operations in the last seven years, including in all Level 3 emergencies. During 2019 DTM was active in over 78 countries. To coordinate and support operations implemented by approximately 5,200 staff, the global DTM support team is comprised of 45 specialists across eight locations (Geneva, London, Bangkok, Nairobi, Dakar, Cairo, Vienna and The Hague).

The DTM team in South Sudan is one of the world’s largest, with over 80 staff working across multiple components and thematic areas to inform humanitarian, early recovery and public health programming. Ongoing operations include tracking displaced and returned populations and their needs, monitoring population flows through key border crossings and transport hubs, operating biometric registration systems for fair and efficient delivery of humanitarian aid, delivering thematic household surveys in urban areas and displacement camps, and assessing existing infrastructure and services in areas of return.
 
Following a scale up of DTM’s operations in South Sudan since 2018, there is now an unprecedented amount of data available for analysis. However, such data is only beginning to be leveraged at its maximum potential for the purpose of guiding humanitarian, early recovery and public health interventions. The unit is currently expanding its data analysis portfolio, developing collaborations with other humanitarian and early recovery partners and expanding beyond descriptive analysis while maintaining a large range of regular information products accessible by operational partners. It is also transitioning towards progressive automation of data analysis processes, following global best practices in data analytics and data protection.

The main objective of this internship will be to assist IOM to develop new analytical products based on data collected by DTM in South Sudan, with a particular focus on location assessment and household / individual survey data, and to contribute to the automation of data cleaning, analysis and visualisation processes by developing suitable scripts in R.

Located in the IOM London office, under direct supervision of the DTM Analytics, Knowledge and Output Quality (AKO) Unit Lead (London), DTM Data Analyst (Juba, South Sudan) and the DTM Coordinator (Juba, South Sudan), and the overall/daily supervision of the Global DTM Coordinator (London), the successful candidate will integrate into the AKO unit.
