Overview

27/08/2021

In the northeast, the Boko Haram insurgency has affected more than 13 million people, and more than eight million are in need.?  After more than 10 years of conflict, the group continues to carry out high-profile attacks against the military and civilians in Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa states. In 2019, a resurgence and escalation of the Boko Haram crisis was witnessed across northeastern Nigeria. About one million people in the affected area are entirely inaccessible.?

Violence in the northeast has caused massive displacement and at the same time restricted movement: it has disrupted food supplies, hindered access to basic services, and limited agricultural activities.?Food security, nutrition, WASH and protection assistance continue to be priority needs. INFORM measures Nigeria's risk of humanitarian crisis and disaster to be very high, at 6.5/10.?
