The Boko Haram-triggered crisis in north-east Nigeria shows no sign of abating, while escalation of violence in other parts of the country also requires swift humanitarian response. It is projected that in 2017, 8.5 million people in north-east Nigeria’s Borno, Adamawa and Yobe States will require humanitarian assistance. Famine-like conditions are forecast for 120,000 people and 5.1 million people in all are expected to be food insecure by mid-2017. The northeast of Nigeria is experiencing a severe protection, food and nutrition security crisis. Meanwhile, 42 per cent of health structures have been totally destroyed. In 2017, protection support will be organized for some 6.7 million people, particularly those living in newly accessible areas in Borno State and women and children. The number of people in need of food assistance is likely to rise from 3.9 million in 2016 to 5.8 million in 2017. Nutrition needs will almost triple, from 2.5 million to 6.7 million in 2017. Support for resident and displaced people to resume food production and for returnees to reintegrate will prevent a deepening food security crisis and provide young people with alternatives to urban migration and joining armed groups. In 2016, almost 1 million people received food assistance and 1.5 million people were provided with nutrition services. A fully resourced HRP in 2017 will mean millions of people, including hundreds of thousands of severely malnourished children, will receive desperately needed food and nutrition assistance. Some 6.5 million people will have access to health services protecting them from infectious diseases.
IOM’s intervention in Nigeria will focus on improving living conditions of IDPs in Nigeria’s North East by responding to immediate and longer-term needs identified through the Displacement Tracking Matrix. Immediate relief support will include shelter, non-food items, WASH interventions, displacement management, mental health and psychosocial support, coordination and support services. IOM will also support longer-term solutions through livelihood support, service restoration and social cohesion.
