EVIDENCE OF THE NORTH - SOUTH CONFLICT IN SOUTHERN Sudan

 

 

 

 

Landsat data from 2000 show an extensive cropping activity where the Mabaan people populated a corridor between Boing and Yabus, just east of the Adar Yel oil fields. However, since 2000 it has been reported that over twenty thousand Mabaan people fled east with only the clothes on their backs to the rebel (SPLA) controlled territory around Yabus where they now are destituted as internal refugees - in November 2005 no evidence of cropping can be seen in the area.

 

The Landsat images show the extent of farming activities by cleared farm fields in 2000, no evidence of cropping activities can be observed in late 2006 from an area that would have been able to feed several thousands of people in 2000!.
