DTM Ecuador Round 4 Report August 2016

En respuesta al terremoto ocurrido en la costa de Ecuador con epicentro en Pedernales y subsecuentes réplicas, la Organización Internacional para las Migraciones (OIM) está actualmente implementando la Matriz de Seguimiento de Desplazados (DTM en inglés). La DTM Ecuador recoge información sobre la ubicación, números, necesidades y vulnerabilidades de la población desplazada como resultado del terremoto.

Las personas que han perdido sus viviendas han optado por diferentes opciones para su alojamiento. Con la apertura de 28 albergues oficiales1 por parte del Gobierno del Ecuador, 2.110 familias han optado por esta opción donde pueden acceder a servicios básicos y de protección.

Otras familias todavía se encuentran viviendo en sitios espontáneos (refugios) y prefieren no alejarse de sus viviendas y medio de vida, así como hay familias que se han instalado con estructuras precarias frente a sus viviendas para proteger sus últimos efectos personales. Este reporte es una compilación de la información recogida de los Refugios.

DTM Ecuador Round 1 Report May 2016

In response to the earthquake in Pedernales, Ecuador, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) is currently implementing the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM). DTM Ecuador is collecting information regarding the locations, the numbers, the needs and the vulnerabilities of the population displaced as a result of the earthquake. This first report of DTM Ecuador presents the main findings derived from the information collected in 76 sites hosting 10 or more displaced families in various regions affected by the earthquake. The evaluation was implemented in different cantons in the provinces of Manabí and Esmeraldas between the 4th and 7th of May 2016.

The assessment was carried out by three IOM mobile teams with a questionnaire administered to key informants in order to obtain updated information on the conditions of the sites where displaced persons are hosted. The unit of assessment is a site (i.e. camp, lodgings or collective centers, spontaneous sites and host families) and data from the Ministry of Social and Economic Inclusion (MIES) was used as the basis for identifying the sites on the ground.

The 76 sites assessed by IOM are currently hosting 2,989 families with a total of 11,274 individuals. As mentioned above, the number includes only families and persons in sites hosting 10 or more families. The number captured by DTM is, thus, smaller than the number reported by MIES and the estimates of the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing (MIDUVI) (based on an assessment of affected homes).
