Summary

Increasing instability and confl­ict throughout parts of Central Equatoria, particularly around Kajo Keji, Lainya and Yei, led to the displacement of thousands of civilians around the end of 2016 and into early 2017 towards areas by the South Sudanese and Uganda border. The majority of civilians ­fled their home areas around the end of 2016 and early 2017 into northern Uganda while others settled across three main areas forming spontaneous IDP sites: Ajio, Kerwa and Logo. All three sites are in Liwolo payam of Kajo Keji County and the IDPs are staying in an area separate from the local host community. Based on IOM registration Figures, a total of 17,356 individuals, or 9,151 households, are displaced across the three IDP settlements. Overall, males represent 47% of the population and females represent 53% of the population.
