SITUATION OVERVIEW

As of end of September 2016, more than 2.7 million people had fled their homes in South Sudan since fighting broke out in December 2013, with over 1.7 million internally displaced people inside the country and 1 million who had fled as refugees to neighbouring countries. This represents an increase of about 200,000 people newly displaced. There were about 202,020 people sheltering in Protection of Civilians (PoC) sites in United Nations bases.

During November, the refugee outflow to neighbouring countries continued, with an average of 2,480 South Sudanese arriving in Uganda daily, the majority from the Greater Equatoria region. At the same time, fighting continued to drive internal displacement. In Central Equatoria, several thousand people fled from locations such as Morobo, Lainya and Yei to Kajo-Keji, while in Western Equatoria insecurity in Yambio caused the temporary displacement of some 750 people.
