Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) for Children on the Move

In 2019, the inter-agency DTM for Children on the Move helpdesk received 65 support requests from colleagues in 7 humanitarian agencies/groups working in HQ, in 4 regional offices, and in 15 country offices. CP AoR colleagues are encouraged to contact the Project Coordinator for remote or in-person facilitation on collaborating with DTM, identifying information needs, selecting indicators for DTM data collection, and for guidance on how to analyze and use DTM data. Country-specific information on DTM (contact information, data collection methodologies, published reports, and downloadable raw-data) may be found when searching by country on the following website: https://displacement.iom.int

The project is looking for volunteers willing to pilot the indicators and tools for integrating child protection into DTM Location Assessments and/or Flow Monitoring Surveys. Selected pilot countries will benefit from the following support:

  • In-country facilitation with CP partners on running a workshop to identify CP information needs, draft questions/indicators, and draft the CP data analysis plan.
  • In-country facilitation with DTM on integrating CP into their systems: leading discussions on proposed new indicators, drafting inter-agency sensitive data sharing pathways, establishing the DTM urgent action process, and facilitation of intro to CP & GBV training for DTM enumerators.
  • Analysis of the first 2-3 rounds of data to identify required changes to the indicators/questions to improve reliability.
  • Support to CP Coordinators and Information Management Officers to identify the uses of the different DTM datasets for CP strategic planning, coordination, response and reporting.

Colleagues interested in having their respective countries considered as pilot locations for the DTM for Children on the Move project should contact the Project Coordinator: Shannon Hayes (shayes@unicef.org).
