IOM DTM measures mixed migration along the Ugandan (UGA) border through four strategically located flow monitoring points (FMPs). Over 90 per cent of persons observed at these points are South Sudanese. The movement from UGA to SSD does not necessarily equal returns as most movement is short term and circular. In the period 1 April to 31 October 2018, overall movement from UGA to SSD has not significantly increased. However, data collected by interviewing 9,370 households representing 25,669 individuals revealed two trends that suggest an improvement in the humanitarian crisis. Firstly, there has been a decrease in people fleeing SSD due to conflict (personal insecurity or food insecurity caused by conflict). Secondly, the number of persons returning to SSD citing family reasons as motivation for travel with the intention of staying at their destination in South Sudan for more than a year has increased.

In the Cathedral Collective Centre of Wau Town, DTM in coordination with WFP undertook a card conversion exercise, registering a total of 18,209 individuals corresponding to 4,569 households from 29 September to 5 October 2018. The exercise will allow beneficiaries to access services and partners to allocate resources efficiently.

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 attached report illustrates a summary of findings, with more detailed sectoral dashboards available to download online on displacement.iom.int/south-sudan

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 September 2018. The team processed 2,506 individuals corresponding to 1,187 households. 1,914 out of these 2,506 persons (76%) were verified individuals already registered since September 2017 and 592 individuals were newly registered (F.1). The exercise will allow beneficiaries to access services and partners to allocate resources efficiently.

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.
