  • With the rainy season in South Sudan coming to an end in September of 2015, the United Nations (UN) Country Team and humanitarian actors required information to plan efficient delivery of assistance and protection to people in need. Due to challenging logistical conditions, it had not been possible to reach this population during the rainy season. The United Nations Institute for Training and Research ? Operational Satellite Applications Program (UNITAR-UNOSAT) developed a monitoring framework for South Sudan, in consultation with United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) and other organizations working in the country. To support humanitarian assistance planning, UNITAR-UNOSAT conducted a qualitative analysis using high-resolution satellite imagery over portions of the Unity and Jonglei states in South Sudan (see Map 1). The analysis identified areas of destruction, looting, internally displaced persons (IDPs), and visible cattle, a potentially useful indicator of population and wealth distribution in these areas. Subsequently, UNITAR-UNOSAT performed a quantitative analysis of possible IDP shelters and estimated the number of potentially damaged structures within the same areas. This report outlines the methods and results of this analysis.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of IDPs in the UNMISS Malakal base as seen by the WorldView-2 satellite. As of 20 February 2016, 6,438 shelters as well as 228 infrastructure and support buildings were identified. Burned areas in sectors 1, 2 and 3 were also visible. A total of 2,839 structures were burned, including 96 camp infrastructure buildings and 2,743 shelters. As can be seen from the imagery, the number of structures in the initial Protection of Civilians (PoC) zones 1, 2, 3 and 4 has increased since the fire, and an additional area has been set up with shelters. Sectors 1 and 2 are newer PoC extensions with larger shelters, each holding up to 30 people. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR-UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Minkaman IDP site in Lakes State, South Sudan, as seen by the WorldView-2 satellite. As of 13 January 2016, UNOSAT analyses located a total of 17,216 structures which include 713 administrative buildings, 1,538 improvised shelters, 490 permanent structures, 1,438 semi-permanent structures, and 13,037 tent shelters. Previous analysis from 12 February 2015 indicated 12,960 shelters and thus the updated analyses indicates an increase of approximately 33.6% in the number of shelters. Note that IDPs sheltering under trees are not detected by this analysis. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings at the Delthoma IDP camp in Upper Nile State, South Sudan, as seen by the WorldView-1 satellite on 29 November 2015. This camp lies approximatively 5 km east of Melut and UNOSAT analyzed a total of 3,993 IDP structures (3,172 tent shelters, 239 improvised shelters and 582 tukuls) as well as 118 administrative structures. The camp is split into 5 individual camps and occupies a total area of 114.9 ha. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected shelters and other buildings in the Bentiu UNMISS base as seen by the WorldView-2 satellite on 31 October 2015. Imagery collected on this date shows that the IDPs within the base Protection of Civilian (PoCs) areas has increased by more than 12% since the previous UNOSAT analysis, done using an image collected 7 March 2015. As of 31 October 2015, a total of 12,641 shelters were detected within the PoCs and Contingency zones, but excluding structures within the UNMISS base boundary. Specifically, 10,925 structures were tent shelters and 1,685 were camp infrastructure buildings. The remaining 31 structures where found outside the delineated areas and consisted mainly of sentry posts and watch towers. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR -UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of IDPs in Bor UNMISS Base and Protection of Civilian (PoC) areas, in Jonglei state, as seen by the WorldView-3 satellite on 8 October 2015. The IDP structures were moved from the old PoC area in the northeast of the base to the new PoC area found in the south, and currently all the IDP shelters are now entirely in the southern extension of the UNMISS base. There are currently 1,077 structures in the IDP settlement with 101 consisting of infrastructure buildings and 976 of shelter structures. A large part of the camp still remains unoccupied and this can be seen as the Contingency area. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of IDPs in the UNMISS Malakal base as seen by the WorldView-2 satellite on 26 September 2015. Imagery acquired on this date shows that the IDP camp extent has increased compared with the previous UNOSAT analysis. Imagery also shows that shelters installed outside the UNMISS base are still increasing. Note that IDP occupied areas include improvised shelters and, in some cases, administrative support and other structures which gives a total number of 536 Camp infrastructure buildings and 7,791 Shelter structures. As can be seen from the imagery, PoC 1, 2, 3 and 4 are the initial or old Protection of Civilians (PoC) zones, Sector 1 and 2 are the new PoC extensions while Sector 3 is a contingency area mainly for administrative structures and Sector 4 is void of any infrastructure at the moment. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of IDP shelters in the UN House compound in Juba, Central Equatoria, South Sudan, as seen by WorldView-3 satellite on 25 September 2015. Satellite imagery analysis indicates that the Protection of Civilians (PoCs) areas occupy 89 hectares, and as of 25 September 2015 they contained a total of 8,214 shelters and 239 infrastructure and support buildings. Also, as seen in inset 2 and 3 of PoC 2 from 22 August 2015 and 25 September 2015 all shelters have been removed and relocated as part of reorganization efforts in the area. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.
