The total number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) the UN Mission in South Sudan’s Protection of Civilians (PoC) site in Bentiu as of 28 February 2016 is 119,647. The second February 2016 population count was held in Bentiu PoC from the 26th to the 28th of February, 2016.
Compared to the first count conducted in mid-February, we have seen a slight drop from 120,278 individuals to 119,647 individuals, despite registering more than 2,900 new arrivals between the two counts. The reason for the drop in population could be because there was a General Food Distribution (GFD) conducted during the first round and not during the second.
