Forcier Consulting and Internews

In February 2015, Internews established Nile FM, a community radio station in Malakal County, Upper Nile state. As part of Internews' Humanitarian Information Service (HIS) that brings information to displaced and vulnerable populations throughout the country, Nile FM responds to the information needs of the internally displaced people (IDPs) in the region.

This snapshot report highlights key findings from a separate baseline survey conducted exclusively outside of the PoC in areas in and around Malakal County, though some key findings from these previous waves have been included to further contextualize the more recent survey.
