The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is a Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) cluster tool developed by the International Organization for Migration (IOM). DTM is a survey-based information management tool used to gather baseline information on internally displaced persons (IDPs) and their conditions in the location in which they have temporarily settled. Under South Sudan’s CCCM guidelines DTM is rolled-out in all sites classified as Protection of Civilians (PoCs), settlements and collective centers and host communities.
DTM provides monthly information on the needs of South Sudan’s displaced populations. It provides a baseline of information on the core emergency sectors and population tracking information for all humanitarian partners to plan interventions, taking into consideration the specific needs of men, women, boys and girls. The CCCM tool acts as a referral mechanism for sectorial data for relevant clusters (Shelter, Health, Education, Protection, Water Sanitation and Hygiene, Gender, etc.) for corresponding action.
DTM is a flexible instrument, adaptable to diverse situations and diverse information requirements. The methodological concept of DTM among each mission remains the same, with implementation and operational activities adapted accordingly to local context. DTM has been designed as a structured approach which corresponds closely with all information needs. All data and reports are available from the DTM website.
