South Sudan: Displacement Site Flow Monitoring: Bentiu PoC Site - Long term trend overview: July 2017 - March 2018
With a larger population than Malakal and Wau PoC combined*, Bentiu PoC site has witnessed the largest net population flow in and out of its gates during the nine-month reporting period. The in- and out-flows are comparable in scale to those of other PoC sites taking overall population sizes into account. During the reporting period, 31,366 individuals left the site and 7,661 people arrived at the site. Please note that whilst DTM targets interviews at travellers with more long-term intentions, departures do not necessarily signify permanent return or relocations to a third area as much of the movement is circular. The majority of individuals arrived from Unity State (74%) and Juba (8%), followed by Sudan (12.5%). Unity State entries were primarily comprised of arrivals from Rubkona (17% of all arrivals), Koch (15%) and Leer (14%) (F2).
