In August 2021, the monthly population count was conducted at Masna Collective Centre where 3,466 individuals / 911 households were identified and Naivasha IDP Camp where 8,505 individuals / 2,386 households were counted. The population of Naivasha IDP Camp marginally decreased by 918 individuals compared to July 2021 results.
DTM conducts regular population counts to monitor population dynamics and displacement trends. The August 2021 population count in Bentiu IDP camp found the camp population to stand at 108,456 individuals (16,019 households) in 12,071 inhabited shelters (on average 7 individuals per shelter), representing a 7 per cent increase since April 2021. This compares to the biometric registration figures from August 2021, which recorded 125,852 individuals (30,507 households) registered as active beneficiaries in the site, representing a decrease by 3,041 individuals since beginning of June2021 due to beneficiaries relocating to their areas of origin.
The International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) and Shelter and Settlement teams visited Raja Town’s IDP, returnee and host populations in July 2021 in order enable humanitarian access through registration and to respond to immediate shelter needs of returning, displaced and local communities. IOM DTM maintains a biometric registration database in Raja Town. During maintenance IOM carries out registrations of new born babies, the replacements of lost cards, merging of households that have requested to be included as one unit and the handling of referred protection cases from protection partners. In July 2021, IOM registered 6,827 individuals (2,000 households) categorized as 3,741 returnees (55%), 2,773 host community members (41%) and 313 IDPs (5%).
IOM DTM biometrically verified and registered new arrivals at Wau Masna Collective Centre bringing the total population to 3,445 individuals (903 households) as of July 2021. This exercise was prompted by monthly population counts that continuously showed the site's population to have decreased, reaching 2,732 IDPs in June 2021 which stood in stark contrast to the 10,997 IDPs that remained officially registered in the biometric database at the time.
DTM conducts regular population counts to monitor population dynamics and displacement trends. The June 2021 population count in Bentiu IDP camp found the camp population to stand at 107,130 individuals (15,716 households) in 12,012 inhabited shelters (on average 7 individuals per shelter), representing a 7 per cent increase since April 2021. This compares to the biometric registration figures from June 2021, which recorded 128,893 individuals (30,941 households) registered as active beneficiaries in the site, representing a decrease by 2,709 individuals since beginning of April 2021 due to beneficiaries relocating to their areas of origin.
In June 2021, the monthly population count was conducted at Masna Collective Centre where 2,732 individuals / 740 households were identified and Naivasha IDP Camp where 8,413 individuals / 2,286 households were counted. The population of Naivasha IDP Camp marginally decreased from 8,415 individuals in May 2021 (decreased by 2 individuals). DTM was unable to publish May 2021 population count figures for Masna Collective Centre due to operational constraints, but the number of site inhabitants has increased by 208 individuals since April 2021.
The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in the East and Horn of Africa (EHoA) region is currently active in six countries (Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan, and Uganda), and its methodology includes four main components (mobility tracking, flow monitoring, registrations, and surveys).
As of July 2021, DTM in the region tracked 9.1M Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and 3.2M Returnees, as reported during the last round of DTM assessments for each country, or through secondary data sources.

Cette fiche d’information présente les principaux résultats des opérations d’identification et d’enregistrement des PDIs menées par l’OIM dans le site de Majengo Mapya, dans le territoire de Nyunzu, le 14 juin 2021. Des équipes d’enquêteurs se sont rendues dans ce site de déplacement afin de procéder hutte par hutte à l’enregistrement des ménages présents. Ce travail a été fait sur le terrain en collaboration avec les comités des déplacés et la Division des Affaires Humanitaires (DIVAH) du Tanganyika.
