Summary

The inter-communal fighting that flared up in Jonglei State and Greater Pibor Administrative Area of South Sudan in February 2020 forced over 8,000 people - the majority of whom were women and children -  to seek safety in makeshift shelters in the area adjacent to the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) base in Pibor Town. Throughout 9 March to 12 April 2020, IOM tracked a total of 7,416 individual movements newly entering (2,934) and intending to permanently exit (4,482) signifying a net outflux of 1,548 individuals since the start of the exercise. By mid-April, the IDP site adjacent to UNMISS Pibor has seen a sharp decline in its population and partners are beginning to downscale operations.
