- Project Background
In response to the need for regular monitoring and gathering accurate information on the socio-economic characteristics of the IDPs and their households, IOM established the National Monitoring System (NMS) based on the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) approach designed by IOM at the global level. The NMS provides the information of the comprehensive profile of the IDP population in Ukraine, including their financial situation and basic needs, labour market situation, mobility intentions, and self-assessment of the integration into the local communities in 24 oblasts of Ukraine and the city of Kyiv.
To provide up-to-date data on the characteristics of internally displaced persons and their households, as well as their needs and concerns, IOM intends to carry out the survey of IDPs and their households residing in 24 oblasts of Ukraine and the city of Kyiv. The main goal is to collect and analyze information on the socio-economic profile of the displaced population and their households, including their labour market situation, services accessibility, and needs, financial situation and basic needs, mobility intentions as well as integration into local communities.
- Expected Results
The IOM’s intervention aimed at collecting and analysing information on the socio-economic profile of the IDPs and their households is expected to improve the accessibility of the accurate sex-age-disability disaggregated data on the displaced population residing in 24 oblasts of the country and the city of Kyiv. The data will lay a basis for the government and non-government stakeholders in designing evidence-based policies and programmatic responses to internal displacement in the country.
