Displacement Tracking and Monitoring

The Displacement Tracking and Monitoring (DTM) Unit of IOM South Sudan is mandated to coordinate the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) and carry out biometric registration, Movement Trend Tracking and Village Assessment Surveys (VAS). The DTM Unit tracks, collects and stores data on internally displaced populations across South Sudan while also monitoring site conditions.
