The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is a methodology to track and monitor the displacement and mobility of the migrant population. It has been designed by IOM to capture, process and disseminate information in order to provide a better understanding of the movements and changing needs of moving populations. In Panama, the DTM was activated in 2019 in response to the arrival of extra-regional migrants from the Caribbean, Africa and Asia, though the National Park Darien in the Colombia border. The DTM is operated in Panama with the aim of collecting, analyzing and disseminating critical and multi-level information on the mobility, vulnerabilities and needs of populations on moving, enabling decision-makers to provide context-specific assistance.
