South Sudan — Wau PoC AA Headcount (May 2019)
Throughout 2018 until February 2019, DTM observed a steady decline of Wau PoC AA site’s population. However, between March and May, the population increased by 30 per cent (by 4,248 individuals). This can be attributed to the continued displacement caused by clashes between pastoralists and farmers in Kuarjena and Rocrocdong, Jur River that broke out in early March 2019. Jur River arrivals have caused Masna collective site’s population to more than double (increase of 125%) since March.
