Displacement Tracking and Monitoring

DTM Libya was established in late 2015 following several displacement waves produced by conflict since 2011, with the purpose of providing accurate and timely baseline data and trends on the locations and movements of IDPs, returnees and migrants. DTM is composed of Mobility Tracking, and Flow Monitoring modules and a Maritime Incidents Database. The data and analysis and results produced by DTM is used to support targeted and evidence-based humanitarian assistance and advocacy.
  • Registration
  • dtm
  • Returnees
  • Vas

    IOM began Biometric Registration of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in June of 2014. The process includes fingerprinting of all household members and photographing young children and babies whose fingerprints are not recordable. 


    The DTM is a Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster tool developed by IOM and used to gather baseline information on IDPs and their conditions in the location in which they have temporarily settled.


    Since August 2007, IOM has tracked and registered returnees and IDPs in South Sudan.


    VAS is a comprehensive data for South Sudan that has informed humanitarian and development responses since 2007. VAS provides detailed information on access to basic services, infrastructure and other key indicators to ensure that reintegration programmes are developed and implemented on a foundation of accurate information.


Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM)

As the world is increasingly witnessing significant waves of displacement stemming from natural disaster and conflict, we ask "How can we strengthen our emergency responses?” One clear way is to collect more and better data.
