In short
Daily influx of refugees from South Sudan into Uganda continues to fall sharply over the last seven months. Titus Jogo, the Adjumani district refugee desk officer, says the decline is attributed to improving food security situation in the youngest East African country. He says on average, daily influx stands at 170 refugees compared to more than 500 people who arrived daily between January and May this year.
