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 this second round, the IOM DTM covered a total of 225 payams in 46 counties located across 8 states. This report specifically focuses on returnees and IDP population in Kapoeta South County, where data collection covered 17 bomas in 5 payams, from April – June, 2018. Mobility tracking captured a total of 2,884 IDPs (866 households) and 589 returnees (154 households).

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. Movement into Sudan peaked in February 2018 when 1,850 individuals passed through the Flow Monitoring Point (FMP) in direction of Sudan (F.1). Khartoum, Sudan remains the most common destination (79%), followed by Warrap (6%), located just south of Abyei.

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. In early August, humanitarian partners were alerted to the presence of the IDPs and organized an assessment mission to the displacement site, where IDPs are currently residing primarily with family members in the host community. Ongoing WFP food distribution in the area has mitigated the impact of displacement.

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 the request of the local authorities and partners on ground. DTM biometrically registered 868 individuals, addressed lost card issues for 120 households and changed cards for 22 households.
As of July 2018 and since February 2017, DTM has registered 74,888 individuals or 17,064 households in seven registration centres in Panyijar. Of the total registered individuals in Panyijar; Nyal Town, Ganyiel Town and Pachaar host the largest registered populations with 33.6 per cent (25,184 individuals), 29.9 per cent (22,422 individuals) and 13.8 percent (10,300 individuals) respectively.
