Joint Humanitarian team conducted an Initial Rapid Needs Assessment in Rumbek North following the report of displacement of Pakam community who were residing in Mayom County, which is part of Rup community of Rumbek centre.


The team was divided into clusters and each cluster conducted an assessment in relevance to its area of concern. The tools used were extracted from IRNA questionnaire which was revised in 2016. All the clusters used key informant interview, focus group discussion with women, men, children and returnee’s representatives both women and men. Another key method used is observation and transact walk in the returnees surrounding.

Principales constatations: 

The general security situation in Maper is calm though fragile due to fear of cattle raiders from unity state and Tonj East which attacked twice in February 2019. The returnees are staying in a congested place because all the returnees have gathered at Eyat including those who were residing in Rumbek Centre. In the process of retaliation 2 children got lost between Yirol town and Nyang. They were reported to be staying with good wishers who promised the guidance to surrender them if they turn up in Yirol. They returnees expressed readiness to be reintegrated since they wanted to cultivate in the upcoming raining season. During the focus group discussion held with women and men, they stated that returnees are in dire need of three things ranking from the first being the most important item to the last.i.e. Food, NFI and health services
