As many as 3 million people will need humanitarian assistance and protection in Cameroon in 2017. Boko Haram-related violence has displaced around 200,000 Cameroonians internally and led to an influx of some 74,000 Nigerians in the Far North region. Some 274,000 Central African refugees have sought refuge in the East, Adamaoua and North regions. In total, 2.6 million people in the country are food insecure to the point of crisis or emergency levels. Severe acute malnutrition (SAM) is touching the 2 per cent emergency threshold in one district in the Far North. In 2016, humanitarian actors assisted 722,000 people in Cameroon. Food was delivered to 405,000 people, health services provided to 263,000 people and nutritional support to over 100,000 people. Despite a dangerous and difficult operating environment, this year humanitarian partners reached over 266,000 people with humanitarian assistance in the Far North region. Nevertheless, the threat posed by explosive hazards in this region continues to impede humanitarian access. Without sufficient funding, the lives of 288,000 severely food insecure people and 314,000 girls and boys under 5 years old suffering from severe and moderate acute malnutrition will be endangered. Equally, tens of thousands of children will not go to school and hundreds of thousands of women and men will at the mercy of violence, especially in the Far North region.

In Cameroon, IOM will identify needs and gaps in the humanitarian response through its Displacement Tracking Matrix. In 2017 IOM will respond to the needs of the most vulnerable IDPs, returnees and hosting communities through the provision of psychosocial support, shelter and non-food items, assistance to vulnerable populations at risk of food insecurity through agriculture strengthening and facilitate early recovery through access to short term income generation activities and rehabilitation of community infrastructures in the far north of Cameroon.
