- Biometric Registration
Aneet Town in Abyei Administrative Area (AAA) experienced rounds of land induced conflict in February 2022. This led to displacement of people to Comboni Primary school, who were later asked to vacate the facility as schools resumed. On 26 May 2022, Nyinkuac IDP site was formed to accommodate the displaced persons.
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 Nyinkuac IDP site starting end of August to and finished early September 2022. During the registration a total of 1,598 individuals belonging to 664 households where registered.
Forty-two per cent of the registered population were between 18 and 59 years of age, among which 31 per cent were female. The general overview of the registration shows that 61 per cent of the total population were females while 39 per cent were male. Among the recorded household sizes, individuals with household size one were most dominant (45%), followed by household size 2 (19%). In the category of vulnerabilities, six per cent breastfeeding mothers were registered representing the most vulnerabilities among the displaced population in the site.
