Commissioned on behalf of the International Organization for Migration’s Shelter team, the multi-sectoral survey seeks to inform humanitarian partners and transition/recovery actors of gaps in services and the needs of populations in Wau Town.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM), in cooperation with ACTED, in support of the World Food Programme (WFP) and other partners, conducted a biometric registration (BMR) exercise at Bor Protection of Civilians Site (Jonglei) from 13 to 15 Septe

Through Mobility Tracking, DTM is able to provide a comprehensive baseline and regular updates on the trends and changes in numbers, locations and priority needs of IDPs and returnees in South Sudan.

In mid-July, armed attacks in the Dungop in Abyei led to the displacement of 150 individuals (30 households) to Abyei’s Ameth Aguok region.

IOM DTM is measuring migration to and from Sudan passing through Abyei Town (Amiet Market). Migration to Sudan has been 4.5 times higher than movement from Sudan into South Sudan during the reporting period, December 2017 to June 2018.

Internally displaced persons (IDPs) that have recently fled to Yambio town as a result of conflict indicate that they have traveled from areas such as Saura, Makporo, Mamamo, Bazumburu, and Rimenze (Yambio Payam).

Since the end of May, conflict between government and opposition forces has led to IDPs fleeing to Tambura from the Nagero area. Travel routes are unsafe, and IDPs have resorted to traveling by foot to reach IDP sites.

The International Organization for Migration’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (IOM DTM), in partnership with the World Food Programme (WFP), local authorities and other partners, conducted a biometric registration (BMR) exercise in Nyal and Ganyiel towns between 28 June and 10 July, 2018 as per t

With a larger population than Malakal and Wau PoC combined, Bentiu PoC site has witnessed the largest net population flow in and out of its gates during the nine-month reporting period.

DTM recorded a total of 2,539 individuals entering and 1,943 individuals exiting Wau’s Protection of Civilians Adjacent Area (PoC AA) site during the reporting period.

Malakal PoC site stands out as having consistently witnessed a larger infl­ow of people than outfl­ow. During the nine-month reporting period, 5,297 individuals (2,384 households) were recorded entering and 543 individuals exiting (202 households).

Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have been sheltering at the Bentiu protection of civilian (PoC) site since December 2013. There are currently 114,652 IDPs seeking protection in the site.

IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) conducted a combined assessment comprising a Village Assessment Survey (VAS) in Malakal Town and a complementary survey in the PoC site from 16 to 26 February 2018 to meet information gaps identified by the inter cluster working group (ICWG).

The team conducted a biometric registration exercise in the Greater Mayom area from 21 January to 18 March 2018 covering ten different registration centres. The team processed a total of 137,538 individuals corresponding to 47,707 households.

DTM biometrically registered a total of 20,891 individuals (4,490 households) in Bor between 27 February and 14 March 2018. Of these, 93.6 per cent were from Bor South, 4.1 per cent from Twic East and 1.95 per cent from Duk.

Persons exiting PoC sites should not be seen as returnees as these population movements are often cyclical as opposed to permanent. Wau PoC AA site has witnessed relatively more inflows than exits over the three months (F.1&2).
