Building on its global expertise in emergency data collection systems, including in response to previous infectious disease outbreaks, IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) has been monitoring the impact of COVID-19 travel restrictions on human mobility on a global scale. In South Sudan, DTM has been implementing flow monitoring and remote assessments at points of entry to ‘inform the wider response by generating and analysing information on mobility’, a strategic priority set out by the National COVID-19 Response Plan for the Points of Entry pillar. This report makes use of flow monitoring data to analyse the short and medium term impact of COVID-19 travel restrictions on cross-border mobility.
