South Sudan — Wau PoC AA Headcount (April 2019)
Wau PoC AA population, April 2019: 16,284 individuals (49% Female)
Wau Town features one PoC site and five collective centres in which IOM DTM conducts monthly headcounts to monitor changing population dynamics and displacement trends. In April 2019, the monthly count was conducted in Wau PoC AA site, as well as Cathedral, Nazareth, St. Joseph, Lokoloko and Masna collective centres where a total of 27,559 individuals were accounted for. Throughout 2018 until February 2019, DTM observed a steady decline of Wau PoC AA site’s population. However, in March and April 2019, the population increased by 19 per cent - a rise of 2,654 individuals since February 2019 due to the continued displacement caused by clashes between pastoralists and farmers in Kuarjena and Rocrocdong, Jur River that broke out in early March 2019.
