IOM DTM Uganda / South Sudan Flow Monitoring (April - October 2018)

DTM, November 2018
IOM DTM measures mixed migration along the Ugandan (UGA) border through four strategically located flow monitoring points (FMPs). Over 90 per cent of persons observed at these points are South Sudanese. The movement from UGA to SSD does not necessarily equal returns as most movement is short term and circular. In the period 1 April to 31 October 2018, overall movement from UGA to SSD has not significantly increased. However, data collected by interviewing 9,370 households representing 25,669 individuals revealed two trends that suggest an improvement in the humanitarian crisis. Firstly, there has been a decrease in people fleeing SSD due to conflict (personal insecurity or food insecurity caused by conflict). Secondly, the number of persons returning to SSD citing family reasons as motivation for travel with the intention of staying at their destination in South Sudan for more than a year has increased.
