Severe flooding across South Sudan has caused temporary displacement and disruption in service provision to more than 1 million individuals in 2020 (OCHA). DTM mapped more than 100 locations (villages and sites) receiving flood affected IDPs (link to dataset) through a network of field focal points and key informants, in coordination with other humanitarian partners and local authorities.
To inform the humanitarian response to the 2020 flooding and future disaster risk reduction efforts, DTM has prepared a set of maps providing geo-referenced analysis of the flooded areas with separate layers showing the evolution of areas under water since the beginning of June 2020. The satellite imagery analysis is focused on priority areas with a high number of reports of displacement. This includes 7 states with more than 200 payams affected by flooding in 40 counties.
