South Sudan: conflict-related displacement
Created: 17/05/2023 +


As at 14 May 2023, the conflict that began on 15 April in Sudan had displaced more than 57,000 people to South Sudan. 90% of this number were conflict-displaced South Sudanese returnees. The majority of the displaced are settling in border towns, such as Malakal, Paloch, and Renk in Upper Nile state. In the northern town of Renk, as at 10 May, an average of 3,000 new daily arrivals were registered since 16 April, but only 6,000 of the displaced population were hosted in makeshift transition centres, with thousands more scattered throughout the town.
