South Sudan — Biometric Registration Services Beneficiary Satisfaction Survey (November 2020 - June 2021)

IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) interviewed 5,059 households (HHs) representing 37,792 household members (average of 7 individuals / HH) to assess the beneficiary satisfaction among service-receiving IDPs during food distribution following the measures instituted since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of the previously used fingerprint authentication, beneficiaries’ registration cards were scanned to avoid close contact and maintain social distancing.


In June 2021, DTM targeted 250,566 households representing 974,956 individuals for food distribution verification in 19 locations across Central Equatoria, Jonglei, Unity, Upper Nile, Western Bahr el Ghazal and Abyei Administrative Area.

Nigeria — Stadium Camp Biometric Registration Update (20 April 2021)

Following the completion of biometric registration update and verification at Stadium Camp in Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC) in the northeastern state of Borno, 18,151 individuals (3,472 households) have been registered as per 14 April 2021. The average family size within this camp is 5 individuals. As demonstrated in the figure 2, 12 per cent of households contain 1-2 members, 29 per cent containing 3-4 members, 33 per cent containing 5-6 members, 17 per cent containing 7-8 members, 4 per cent containing 9 members and 5 per cent containing 10 and more members.
 
Between 29 March and 14 April 2021, 12,280 individuals (in 2,837 households), representing 68 per cent of the total registered population were re-verified. 5,871 individuals (in 635 households), representing 32 per cent of the total registered population were newly registered. The majority or 59 per cent of the newly registered individuals are from Kukawa LGA, 35 per cent are from Konduga LGA, 4 per cent from Bama LGA and the remaining 2 per cent from other LGAs within and outside Borno.
 
During the exercise, data on vulnerabilities was collected in order to understand the specific needs of the displaced populations and allow for targeted support. Out of the total population, 1,783 individuals (10%) are experiencing some of the major vulnerability concerns presented in figure 3 below.

Sudan — Registration and Flow Monitoring Quarterly Overview (October - December 2020)

From October to December 2020, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) conducted a total of 4,949 registrations in Sudan – 100 per cent of which were internally displaced persons (IDPs) with no new registrations of returnees since July. Ongoing conflict between rebel factions of the Sudan Liberation Army – Abdel Wahid (SLA-AW) led to the displacement of 3,148 IDPs, subsequently registered in Keila, Kidingeer and Mershing, South Darfur. Furthermore, secondary displacement of Sudanese returnees from South Sudan continued, with an additional 1,801 IDPs being registered in Kadugli, South Kordofan, since the previous report. Finally, DTM continued its registrations of incoming South Sudanese into Sudan (2,124 individuals being registered) in Diffra, Abyei PCA Area – DTM’s Flow Monitoring Point (FMP) between South Sudan and Sudan. 

Sudan — Registration and Flow Monitoring Quarterly Overview (July - September 2020)

From July to September 2020, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) conducted a total of 12,316 registrations in Sudan – 95 per cent of which were internally displaced persons (IDPs) and five per cent returnees from internal displacement. Ongoing conflict between deflected factions of the Sudan Liberation Army – Abdel Wahid (SLA-AW) led to violent clashes and the displacement of 8,846 IDPs – subsequently registered in Wasat Jabal Marrah, Central Darfur. DTM also registered 560 returnees in Wasat Jabal Marrah. Furthermore, secondary displacement of Sudanese returnees from South Sudan continued, with an additional 2,910 IDPs being registered in Kadugli, South Kordofan, since the previous report.

DTM conducted 98,751 registrations of flood-affected populations in North and South Darfur. Heavy rains across the country since mid-July caused widespread flooding, landslides, destruction of infrastructure, houses and livelihoods – leading to the declaration of a three-month State of Emergency on 4 September. Death and injury amongst affected populations was widely reported, in addition to the loss of livestock, contamination of essential water supplies and the high risk of spreading water-borne and vector-borne diseases.

Finally, DTM resumed its registrations of incoming South Sudanese into Sudan (680 individuals being registered) in Diffra, Abyei PCA Area – DTM’s flow monitoring point between South Sudan and Sudan. The border point re-opened in July after having been closed since March 2020 as a mitigation measure against the spread of COVID-19 throughout the region. 

Sudan — Registration Quarterly Overview (April - June 2020)

From April to June 2020, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) conducted 6,549 registrations across three states in Sudan – 3,186 (49%) of which were internally displaced persons (IDPs) and 3,363 (51%) returnees. All registered IDPs were situated in Kadugli, South Kordofan, whilst returnees were in both Zalingei, Central Darfur, as well as nine localities in North Darfur. There were no reports of flood-related displacement over this period. DTM registration of households affected by floods will commence during the rainy season in the third quarter of the year. DTM’s flow monitoring point in Abyei, where South Sudanese are registered upon arrival into Sudan, has been closed since the Government of Sudan declared a nationwide health emergency and a near-total closure of its borders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic on 16 March 2020.

Sudan — Registration And Flow Monitoring Quarterly Overview (January - March 2020)

From January to March 2020, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) conducted 52,631 registrations across four states in Sudan – 16,542 (31%) of which were internally displaced persons (IDPs) and 36,089 (69%) returnees. South Kordofan hosted the largest proportion of IDPs, with a total registered population count of 11,223 individuals. The highest caseload of returnees – consisting of 31,102 individuals – were registered in East Jebel Marra, South Darfur. This higher proportion of registered returns is consistent with displacement trends observed throughout the previous year. Through its flow monitoring component, DTM also registered 2,358 South Sudanese having entered Sudan via Abyei between January and March 2020. There were no reports of flood-related displacement over this period. DTM registration of households affected by floods will commence during the rainy season in the second quarter of the year.
