The IOM South Sudan Displacement Tracking and Monitoring Team (formerly Tracking and Monitoring) is engaged in tracking and registering returnees and IDPs in South Sudan from August 2007. IOM and the Relief and Rehabilitation Commission initiated a joint program (Area of Returns – AoR) to track spontaneous returnees through direct assessment visits to the villages of return in South Sudan. The scope of the AoR Program is to provide a detailed understanding of returnee numbers, routes, modes of transport and destinations in order to assist in targeting early reintegration assistance, as well as improving longer term planning including emergency preparedness, early recovery and development. Also the fingerprinting of infants is not carried out. The program was terminated in July 2014 because of the current crisis but the data is available on request.
