Summary

The international Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in partnership with the World Food Programme (WFP), United Nations Missions in South Sudan (UNMISS) and other humanitarian partners conducted a biometric registration exercise at Malakal Protection of Civilians (PoC) site from 12 December 2019 to 7 January 2020. Prior to the registration, the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the PoC site were targeted through a process known as temporary registration (T-Reg) on 26 October 2019 to quickly determine the actual population residing in the site by rapidly establishing a simple fingerprint database of all residents. Those who participated in the T-Reg were screened and allowed to participate in the full biometric registration.
