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.
In the humanitarian context, understanding mobility in situations of crises is a major priority. The design of more effective humanitarian operations relies on successfully adapting assistance to changing needs and changing locations.
A dynamic displacement tracking is a powerful tool. It provides stakeholders and government partners with timely and continuous feedback as to the extent of displacement and needs of a group or population.
DTM represents the largest source of primary data on internal displacement in the world.
It is used by a large number of humanitarian actors in their operations to support a more enhanced response to affected populations.
Tracking displacement. For better aid delivery. #GlobalDTM
