IDMC’s estimates of the total number of IDPs in Benin and the number of new displacements in 2018 are both based on data from IFRC and refer to people displaced by clashes between pastoralists and agriculturalists in Atakora department in July 2018. IDMC triangulated this information using reports from local civil society organisations. IDMC did not receive any evidence that those displaced have returned home or achieved any other form of durable solution, and so has included them in the end-of-year figure.
