Introduction and Needs

In North East Nigeria, the security situation remains unstable with continuing attacks and counter-insurgency activities; a situation which has resulted in prolonged insecurity and endemic violations of human rights, exacerbating the plight of vulnerable civilians and triggering waves of displacement. The Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) Round 18 data highlights that almost 1.8 million people remain displaced in Nigeria, including several families returning from Cameroon who end up living in IDP sites in one of the main towns that are secured by the military, therefore  unable to access their villages of origin. The majority of the people were displaced at the height of the conflict in 2014 and 2015, when non-state armed groups claimed large tracts of territory across Adamawa, Borno, Gombe and Yobe States, most severely affecting Borno State, the epicenter of military operations and civilian displacement.

Since late 2016, IOM scaled up its response to the increasing humanitarian needs of the affected population in the North East of Nigeria. As a result, organizational resources have been made ready and available to augment its ongoing interventions in Nigeria. IOM is currently present in most of the accessible Local Government Areas (LGA) in the North East and has reached around 700,000 affected persons with emergency shelter, non-food items (NFIs), camp coordination and camp management (CCCM), WASH, and mental health and psychosocial support activities.

For 2018, IOM Nigeria is requesting more than USD 60 million for its humanitarian operations which will allow for additional scale up of humanitarian services currently provided by the mission, including the introduction of more sustainable solutions in areas of return.

IOM has been a key contributor to the development, coordination and implementation of the humanitarian response plan in North East Nigeria since 2015. Currently, IOM is co-leading the Shelter, NFI and CCCM, and the Mental Health and Psychosocial Support working groups.

Furthermore, IOM continues to roll out the DTM in 110 LGAs across six states, while biometrically registering affected population in all of these locations. Essential displacement data is then shared with key stakeholders on a regular basis. IOM’s support to the humanitarian community’s preparedness and response in Nigeria also includes establishing and managing humanitarian hubs in Maiduguri and 8 strategic deep-field locations.
