Summary

A village assessment survey was conducted in Bor South from 24 May to 1 June 2016. 36% (85 out of 238) villages were reported deserted. 30% (27 out of 91) schools were non-functional, mainly due to insecurity and damage to infrastructure. 41% (13 out of 32) health facilities were non-functional, also due to insecurity and infrastructure damage. The presence of unexploded ordinance and mines was reported in Jalle, Kolnyang and Bor payams. Jalle and Makuach payams report few returnees due to insecurity and lack of infrastructure. Baidit payam has received the most returnees to date. Top needs reported included shelter and materials for returnees, infrastructure rehabiliation (particularly for schools and health facilities) and agricultural inputs such as seeds and farming tools.
