Returnees (Areas of Return Program)

IOM’s Areas of Return (AoR) activity (2007-2014) was a joint program with the Relief and Rehabilitation Commission tracking spontaneous returnees through direct assessment to the villages of return in South Sudan. The scope of the AoR Program was to provide a detailed understanding of returnee numbers, routes, modes of transport and destinations in order to assist in targeting early reintegration assistance, as well as improving longer term planning including emergency preparedness, early recovery and development.
