Northern parts of Abyei Administrative Area (AAA) experienced rounds of localized conflict between February and March 2022. This led to displacement of people mostly from Amiet area leading to formation of Bokchop IDP site to accommodate internally displaced people (IDP) who were in search of safety within the neighbourhood of Abyei Town.
The International Organization for Migration’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (IOM DTM) in South Sudan maintains biometric registration database of IDPs in displacement sites. DTM carried out its first registration at Bokchop IDP site in September 2022. During the registration a total of 787 individuals belonging to 318 households where registered.

Among the recorded household sizes, individuals with household size one were most dominant (46%), followed by household size 2 (14%) and size 3 (14%).
