During this round of data collection, 3,589 households were surveyed across 497 villages (including 151 spontaneous sites) were targeted in a representative sample that accounted for three types of displaced populations: internally displaced people (IPDs), unregistered refugees and returnees.
There was a slight increase in the number of migrants observed entering the flow monitoring points during this period. A slight increase was also observed from the data collected in February 2017 (see table on observed flows at the flow monitoring points below). The month of May was also marked by several incidents of migrants found stranded or having broken down in the desert in the region surrounding Séguédine and Dirkou. The movements in the area continue therefore to be observed.
The DTM emergency tracking tool was deployed to track and provide up-to-date information on sudden displacement and other population movements in: Bama, Chibok, Damboa, Dikwa, Gwoza, Kaga, Kala Balge, Konduga, Kukawa, Mafa, Monguno and Ngala.
