South Sudan — Displacement Site Flow Monitoring (September 2019)
During September 2019, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) conducted 7,148 interviews with households or groups representing 16,703 individual movements into and out of Bentiu Protection of Civilians (PoC) site, Malakal PoC site, Wau PoC Adjacent Area (AA) site and Wau collective centres (Cathedral, Nazareth, St. Joseph, Lokoloko and Masna combined in analysis).
As in August, there have been few new entries or permanent exits in September 2019 compared to the rest of the year. New entries represented 1.5 per cent (246 individuals) and intended permanent exits 1.0 per cent (170 individuals) of all monitored individual movements. This compares to five and eight per cent in January 2019 with new entries making up an even higher percentage of movements in March to May due a significant influx into Wau displacement sites from Jur River as reported on in population count and thematic reports. Intended permanent exits have been at only one or two per cent since April in contrast to December 2018 to February 2019 where the average was nine per cent.
