This atlas contains a summary of findings form the tenth round of Mobility Tracking conducted across South Sudan through key-informant based assessment at payam and location level between November and December 2020. Mobility Tracking quantifies the presence of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and returnees in South Sudan in displacement sites and host communities. IOM DTM mapped a total of 1,710,966 IDPs (6% previously displaced abroad) and 1,734,329 returnees (34% from abroad) in 3,038 locations across South Sudan.

South Sudan — Event Tracking (January - June 2021)

IOM's Displacement Tracking Matrix conducts a country-wide Mobility Tracking exercise in regular intervals to update a comprehensive IDP and returnee baseline. Click to access the latest Mobility Tracking dataset (3,038 villages/neighbourhoods and displacement sites).

In between Mobility Tracking rounds, DTM conducts ad hoc Event Tracking assessment in order to map instances of new displacement or return in short dedicated reports. IOM teams access iDP/returnee locations and consult local key informants including community representatives, local authorities or humanitarian partners and triangulate findings to provide partners with the most accurate as possible, actionable and current data. Complete dataset with location level information is available here.

Between January and June 2021, DTM reported on 268 spontaneous and 11 organized instances of population movement comprising of 411,105 IDPs (82%) and 90,764 returnees (18%) across ten states and Abyei Administrative Area. Localized conflict accounted for most displacement (60%), while further 20 per cent was the result of national disaster (flooding). Forty-four per cent of the IDPs were displaced by localized conflict to locations in Warrap, and 10 per cent in Upper Nile.

Mauritanie — Rapport sur les suivi des mouvements transhumants: Alertes #6 (Juin 2021)

La transhumance est une tradition de longue date en Mauritanie où elle a subi des évolutions majeures au cours des dernières décennies, dont une raréfaction des ressources et redéfinition des routes empruntées par les troupeaux. Par conséquent, des conflits peuvent survenir lorsque les agriculteurs et les transhumants utilisent les mêmes ressources ou quand les champs agricoles sont endommagés par le passage des troupeaux. Dans le cadre du Suivi des Mouvements de Transhumance, l’OIM met en œuvre un mécanisme d'alerte précoce. Cette activité a pour but de collecter des informations sur les évènements conflictuels et les mouvements massifs ou soudains de bétail qui pourraient provoquer un conflit. Elle permet également d'alerter sur les désastres naturels tels que les feux de brousse. Ces informations sont transmises aux autorités nationales ou locales et aux partenaires dans le but de réduire les tensions et de prévenir les conflits dans les régions d’intervention. Ce tableau de bord présente les informations fournies par le biais de 12 relais communautaires, présents dans les régions de Trarza, Brakna, Gorgol, Guidimakha, Assaba, Hodh El Chargui et Hodh El Gharbi pendant le mois de juin 2021. 

Des mouvements précoces ont été rapportés impliquant le déplacement de plus de 5 200 animaux accompagnés par 146 personnes ainsi que 6 alertes sur des évènements.

South Sudan — Bentiu and Rubkona: Arrivals from Khartoum (February - July 2020)

 

IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) monitors the spontaneous and voluntary arrival of individuals previously displaced in Sudan. Headcount findings from Rubkona Bus Stop confirm that families travel from Pantou border point and transit through Panakuach (Pariang County). Between February and July 2020 , monitoring teams at Rubkona Bus Station have reported the arrival of 2,092 individuals (551 households). Cumulative reports between April 2019 and July 2020 indicate that as many as 34,730 individuals have arrived from Khartoum. 

The headcount overview is supplemented by flow monitoring data to give a broader picture of Sudan to South Sudan (SDN-SSD) migration. Flow monitoring data suggests that whilst many have returned from displacement on buses from Khartoum reaching Bentiu and Rubkona, not all are returning to their habitual residences with many heading to Bentiu Protection of Civilian (PoC) site.
