Background

Despite efforts for a political transition in Yemen over the last years the situation in the country has steadily deteriorated as a result of political instability and increased fighting between different groups. Large scale internal displacement has been observed across Yemen since the dramatic escalation of the situation in March, 2015.

The DTM was launched in April, 2015 with an effort to better inform the humanitarian community about the location and needs of the displaced populations. The DTM identifies both IDP and returnee locations to the smallest geographical division (urban: neighborhood and rural: village) capturing coordinates while matching the identified locations to the OCHA Common Operational Dataset (pcodes). This method also known as Area Assessment represents the core principle to mobility tracking in Yemen.

The DTM is implemented under the framework of the Protection Cluster within the Task Force for Population Movement (TFPM). The Task Force is co-led by IOM. The Task Force was established in April, 2015 as a collaborative approach to coordinate efforts and harmonize tools and methodologies among partners to track and monitor internal displacement for the whole of Yemen.

Within the structure and agreements of the Task Force IOM is responsible for mobility tracking across 12 governorates; Al Jawf, Taizz, Ibb, Lahj, Aden, Al Dhale’s, Al Bayda, Abyan, Shabwa Hadramaut, Socotra and Al Maharah. UNHCR is responsible for collecting displacement information for the remaining 10 governorates. On a regular basis the Task Force convenes and compiles the information collected to jointly analyse and develop the TFPM Information Package; report, dataset, map and dashboard.

The TFPM reports through standard and agreed upon templates and timeframes. Separate DTM products are also shared on a regular basis to provide reactive or more detailed updates on the data and information collected.
