Summary

A nominal decrease was noted in the weekly influx rate of internally displaced persons (IDPs) at the UN Mission in South Sudan’s protection of civilians (PoC) site in Bentiu, the capital of Unity State, even as a sharp increase was recorded in the percentage of new arrivals seeking food. A total of 1,184 individuals arrived at the PoC between 26 September 2015 to 2 October 2015, a 2 per cent decline from the 1,203 new arrivals that had come in the week before, taking the overall population of the PoC to 119,038 individuals or 31,266 households. In keeping with the trend, more than half the new arrivals for this week were women, i.e., 55 per cent.
