Summary

Escalating con­flict along the West Bank of the River Nile in April and May led to a significant movement of people toward Aburoc and Magenis in Mayom County onward to the White Nile area in Sudan. IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) team and the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) conducted a joint rapid head count on 4 June 2017 to establish an updated population figure in Aburoc. The population head count identified 10,298 individuals or 1,692 households in Aburoc. The population in Aburoc has declined significantly by more than 50% since the IOM DTM head count in early March and by more than 40% since the WFP registration conducted in May.
