Niger: Displacement in Diffa region
Conflict and displacement in Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso
Humanitarian Access Overview
After causing waves of displacements from Nigeria since 2013, Boko Haram started leading violent operations in Niger in 2015, mainly in the border region of Diffa. While the situation normalised between 2017 and 2018, an upsurge of violence has been observed since the end of 2018. The population is facing protection concerns as attacks against civilians and human rights violations are recorded with increased frequency. There were 58 attacks reported between January and June 2020.? There are over 100,000 IDPs and 126,000 refugees in the region.? Insecurity, targeted killings, and population displacement have severely impacted access to health and WASH facilities in Diffa, and are also the main drivers of food insecurity in the area.?
