Displacement and population movement

Renewed fighting in Unity and Upper Nile states has affected hundreds of thousands of people - nearly 300,000 people were affected by the upsurge of conflict in the first days of May alone. The number of displaced from the latest surge of conflict is not reflected as such, due to the fluid dynamics and lack of verified information.

Some 1.52 million people have fled their homes, many of them multiple times.
