Summary

IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) measures mixed migration flows at two transportation hubs linking Wau with Juba and Abyei Administrative Area (AAA). In contrast to other Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) in the country, DTM has observed more men and boys travelling alone as only 39 per cent were women and girls. The average household size was 2.0 individuals. This compares to 64 per cent women and girls represented in DTM's data collection in the AAA-based FMP during the same period, with an average travelling household size of 4.7 individuals. Movement was most commonly linked to family and livelihoods rather than conflict.
