DTM IOM Displacement Tracking Matrix: Flow Monitoring Registry – March 2020

DTM’s Flow Monitoring Registry (FMR) surveys people on the move at key transit points within South Sudan (SSD) and at its borders. It provides an insight into mobility trends, migration drivers and traveller profiles to inform programming by humanitarian and development partners and by the government. In total, 39 Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) were active in March 2020, surveying internal flows and cross-border travel with Uganda (UGA), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Sudan (SDN) and the Central African Republic (CAR). In total, 39 Flow Monitoring Points (FMPs) were active in March 2020, surveying internal flows and cross-border travel with Uganda (UGA), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Sudan (SDN) and the Central African Republic (CAR). There was no change in the number or location of FMPs relative to February, but restrictions on cross-border movement were imposed on 24 March by the Government of South Sudan with the aim of preventing the spread of COVID-19 (see DTM’s COVID-19 Mobility Update). Neighbouring countries also imposed mobility restrictions. Figures are only indicative of existing trends among respondents at the active FMPs since DTM does not have full coverage of cross-border or internal flows. Participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous.
