The current total estimate of recently displaced individuals across Sudan has reached 3,601,593 Individuals (719,521 Households). The current assessment has observed the IDP caseload in all of Sudan’s 18 states. The highest proportions of IDPs have been observed in River Nile (14.17%), East Darfur (10.62%), Northern (10.08%), Sennar (7.97%), and White Nile (7.86%). Field teams report that the IDPs observed were originally displaced from eight states.

Due to the ongoing nature of the fighting, many of the reported areas remain largely inaccessible to the field teams. DTM Sudan also estimates that approximately 2.99% of the IDP caseload are non-Sudanese nationals. In addition to the internal displacement, the conflict in Sudan has caused the Mixed Cross-Border Movements of 1,040,883 individuals into neighbouring countries namely Egypt, Libya, Chad, Central African Republic, South Sudan and Ethiopia. 68% of arrivals tracked in those countries were Sudanese nationals and 32% estimated foreign nationals and returnees.
