South Sudan: South Sudan Displacement Crisis: Nyal Port Monitoring – Panyijiar County, Unity State, South Sudan (February 2019)

Source: REACH Initiative
Country: South Sudan

Context and Methodology

Nyal town is located in Northern Panyijiar County, Unity State, along the banks of the Sudd, the third largest swamp in the world. Since the beginning of the crisis, IDPs from Unity and Jonglei States have perceived Nyal as a safe location with ample resources. Recently, Nyal has also become a key location for people travelling to and from nearby islands.
Since 1 November 2016, REACH has monitored three ports in Nyal – Gap Port, Nyal Port and Katieth Port – to record the arrivals and departures on a daily basis. The information gathered covers household (HH) demographics, key push and pull factors, vulnerable populations, and transportation routes. The daily data was synthesised to provide evidence for more effective humanitarian planning.
The REACH team collected data from 7:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday to ensure wide coverage of Nyal’s three ports. REACH teams attempt to interview all arrivals and departures at the household level using a contextualised survey. However, the data presented here is not representative, rather indicative of movement trends for the assessed population.1 This factsheet is based on data on 495 people departing (133 HHs), 423 people arriving (143 HHs), and 1 person transiting (1 HH), which was collected over 18 days from 5 to 28 February 2019.
