IDPs continue to arrive to Wau from insecure areas. It is the most congested PoC site in South Sudan with 30,054 IDPs on just 134,514m2 of land. IOM camp management prioritized the de-congestion of the site to improve living conditions and reduce fire safety risks. Camp management negotiated with UNMISS for the use of 40,000m2 of land adjacent to the PoC for the new extension (Zone C). Site development work took place to prepare the extension for IDPs to shelter, land was cleared and levelled, drains dug and culverts installed, and roads and pedestrian crossings constructed.
