The Boko Haram (BH) insurgency in Nigeria expanded into the Far North region, northern Cameroon in May 2014. Violence and insecurity linked to BH and counter-insurgency operations have caused internal and cross-border displacement, deteriorated socio-economic conditions, and led to widespread destruction of houses, infrastructure, roads, markets, health, and education facilities. 1.2 million people need assistance in the Far North, where 74% of its population was already living below the poverty line prior to the BH incursion in 2014.?The volatile security situation has restricted food access and availability by limiting agricultural activity, decreasing livelihood options, and weakening trade.
