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.
