About South Sudan

Conflict and instability in South Sudan have resulted in large-scale internal and cross-border displacement since the December 2013 crisis of over 4 million individuals. In September 2018, the Revitalized Agreement for the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) was signed between the major warring parties. Whilst overall there have been improvements in security since and returns are ongoing, fighting and communal clashes (frequently linked to cattle raiding) continue to trigger new displacements and the situation remains volatile. 

DTM South Sudan’s toolbox is designed to meet critical information gaps during all phases of response, from preparedness, to intervention and transition/recovery. DTM South Sudan provides country-wide figures on the numbers, locations and priority needs of IDPs and returnees updated on a quarterly and ad-hoc basis. The programme undertakes biometric registration in selected parts of the country to support partners with reaching intended beneficiaries during distributions. Flow monitoring data is collected on a daily basis at displacement sites, key transit hubs and border crossing points to identify mobility dynamics of migrants including IPDs and returnees. Through ad hoc surveys, headcounts, infrastructure/service mapping exercises and other assessments, DTM provides additional information to support partners in planning their response.
