Average expected number of displacements per year – for sudden-onset hazards:
IDMC’s estimate of the total number of IDPs in Côte d’Ivoire is primarily based on a JIPS assessment from 2014 and refers to IDPs displaced during the 2002-2003 war and the political crisis in 2010-2011. The figure also accounts for IDPs displaced in 2017 as a result of land disputes between the Baoulé and Wê communities, and who have not yet returned. It also includes people whose houses were destroyed in May 2018 during a land dispute between indigenous Toura and the Burkinabé Giandé community in Biankouma department.
IDMC’s estimate of the number of new displacements in 2018 is based on local media reports and refers to the people displaced in May 2018 mentioned above.
