Movement Trend and Tracking
South Sudan, the world's newest nation is one of the world's worst humanitarian situations. In December 2013, internal conflict erupted displacing 2 million people including more than 600,000 refugees. South Sudanese have fled to Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, and Sudan. The crisis has especially impacted the next generation of South Sudanese, as 70% of those displaced are children.
IOM has been expanding its assistance to people displaced by the ongoing conflict in South Sudan and has been leading the registration of displaced persons on UN bases in Juba and distributing relief supplies in coordination with humanitarian partners.
The Movement Trend and Tracking project MTT is a web application developed by Response IMT specifically for IOM – South Sudan for the purpose of supporting the management and monitoring of the movement trends of internally displaced persons IDPs in the South Sudan conflict. The website covers the functionalities of data collection, GPS tracking, tickets management, data quality control, and reporting of refugee movement trends on maps. The MTT application provides the required information and reports to assist IOM management in improving the response to the movements of refugees and IDPs that is caused by the South Sudan humanitarian crisis.
