IDMC’s estimate of the total number of IDPs in Uganda and the number of new displacements in 2018 are based on data published by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the media. The estimated number of IDPs accounts for people displaced between 2016 and 2018 and for whom there is no tangible evidence of return or achievement of any other durable solution. 

The estimated number of new displacements relates to three events in 2018 triggered by intercommunal clashes and land disputes between local population and the government.
