Approximately 1.9 million people in Niger will need humanitarian assistance in 2017, including 1.5 million in the nutrition sector and 1.3 million in the food security sector. The country remains at high risk of flooding and it is anticipated that over 100,000 people will need assistance with recovering their livelihoods and gaining access to basic social services. As of September 2016, some 302,000 Nigerian refugees, IDPs and returnees in the Boko Haramaffected region of Diffa were displaced. Food assistance will be required for 340,000 people, including host communities. In addition to conflict related displacement, it is estimated that 200,000 West African and Nigerien migrants will cross the Agadez region next year on their way to Algeria, Libya and Europe. From January to October 2016, 270,000 children were treated for severe acute malnutrition and 317,000 for moderate acute malnutrition. In the same period, over 450,000 people received agricultural support. More could have been achieved with adequate funding: only 46 per cent of HRP funding requirements for Niger were met in 2016 and a 57 per cent shortfall of funding was registered for Diffa on 1 November. Without appropriate resources in 2017, 250,000 children under 5 years of age may suffer from severe acute malnutrition. Around 1.2 million people will remain without hygiene services and potable water, and therefore at heightened risk of infectious disease and malnutrition.

IOM’s intervention in Niger will focus on improving living conditions of IDPs, returnees, refugees and hosting families affected by the Boko Haram Crisis in Diffa region by responding to immediate and longer-term shelter/non-food item needs identified through the Displacement Tracking Matrix. Immediate relief support will include shelter, non-food items, and coordination and support services. IOM will also support longer-term solutions through transitional and durable shelter solutions.
