DTM Round 8 report published

This Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) report is produced by the International Organization for Migration in its role as Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster Lead Agency. The DTM monitors the status and location of displaced populations in temporary displacement sites, gathering information about humanitarian needs and gaps of persons displaced by the earthquake. The data is collected primarily through key informant interviews, observations, small group discussions with both men, women and children.


65 active sites hosting 20 or more households assessed between 25 July and 02 August 2016 in 11 districts

18,292 people from 4,024 households were living in 65 sites hosting 20 or more households

1 new site had become active after Round 7 assessments and 14 sites which were active in Round 7 had been found closed in Round 8.

From 25th July to 02nd August 2016, the DTM team identified and planned to visit 80 potential displacement sites across the affected districts. Of these, 65 were active and hosting 20 households or more in camp-like settings while remaining 15, were found closed or below DTM criteria (20 or more households). These 65 sites were hosting an estimated 4,024 households (18,292 people): 9,293 female, 8,999 male and 2,108 children under 5 years old.

NOTE: Due to having physical accessibility issues in monsoon and some other unavoidable critical factors, DTM team was advised to exclude sites assessment in district Dhading. DTM team is closely monitoring the IDPs movements and living conditions in the district and will consider the sites in the district for assessments in next round if things get better at that time.

Since the last round of DTM (Round 7), the number of IDPs has dropped by almost 17%, as can be seen in the table below:


  Number of Sites Number of Households Number of Individuals
Round 2 409 21,711 117,700
Round 3 104 11,100 59,433
Round 4 120 11,703 58,689
Round 5 100 8,207 40,706
Round 6 82 5,727 26,272
