- Flow Monitoring
Since mid-June 2020, people in South Sudan have been affected by flooding in areas along the White Nile. As numbers increased, a temporary site for the flood-displaced population was set up in Mangala River Port and Bor / Juba Bus Station, where the first group of IDPs arrived on 3 August 2020, and data has been collected since. According to the World Food Programme (WFP), 17,952 individuals/4,911 households are registered in Mangala as of 31 May 2021 (Central Equatoria State- Inter-Cluster Coordination Group).
D T M is conducting Rapid Flow Monitoring (RFM) on site which supplies partners with the number of new arrivals and a basic profile of populations arriving at the site, including areas of departure and intended destinations. Between 2 January and 31 May 2022, D T M surveyed 968 groups representing 5,453 individuals, of which 4,863 were new arrivals. The monthly average in this reporting period of new arrivals is 973 individuals, and most arrivals (83%) are not sure of their intended period of stay in Mangala site. February presents an increase in arrivals (1,640) at the port and bus station compared to other months between January and May 2022.
