Latest GRID figures analysis

Kenya represents a complicated case, with multple causes of violence-induced displacement such as evictions, intercommunal violence, terrorism or development. IDMC bases its estimate on IOM data, from Displacement Tracking Matrix reports from 2015. Updated national data on displacement is not available, as there is no centralised IDP-related data collection system. IDMC has therefore historically relied on outdated data published by UN OCHA in previous years.
