    Northeastern Nigeria Situation Report – June 2017 2017

    Since 2013, extreme violence provoked by the Boko Haram insurgency has caused widespread devastation across northeastern Nigeria and forced 1.83 million people to flee their homes and abandon their livelihoods (International Organization for Migration, Displacement Tracking Matrix XV, March 2017). The latest Cadre Harmonisé (CH) analysis conducted in March 2017 shows that 4. 7 million people are currently severely food insecure (March to May) in the three northeastern states of Adamawa, Borno an d Yobe, with 44 000 facing catastrophe (CH Phase 5). This is expected to further deteriorate during the coming lean season (June to August), when 5.2 million people are projected to be severely food insecure (CH Phases 3+), 50 000 of whom will face catastrophe if adequate support is not provided in time. Ongoing conflict and attacks have prevented households from conducting their livelihoods, particularly agriculture and livestock production, and from accessing markets and basic services. Howeve r, with over 1 million returnees and most IDPs in accessible areas having access to land, sufficient agricultural support is critical to enable them to benefit from the coming rainy season, beginning in June 2017.

    Northeastern Nigeria | Assessing FAO’s fuel-efficient stove intervention
    A post-distribution assessment to enhance Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) - Improving Safe Access to Fuel and Energy in northeastern Nigeria

    Armed conflict in northeastern Nigeria – Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States – has driven millions from their homes and uprooted agriculture‑based livelihoods. In worst affected Borno, poor energy access has exposed vulnerable people to a number of challenges linked to food insecurity and malnutrition, deforestation, protection risks and health risks. When using inefficient energy technologies, such as open fires, the demand for these energy resources is high. In response, FAO is implementing Safe Access to Feul and Energy, following a three-way programmatic approach, namely: (i) reducing energy demand by promoting fuel-efficient technologies; (ii) increasing energy supply through sustainable forestry management practices; and (iii) promoting safe and sustainable livelihoods. With the support of Norway and in partnership with the International Centre for Energy, Environment and Development, FAO provided 5 000 people (IDPs, returnees and host community members) with locally produced cooking stoves in Maiduguri, Jere and Konduga local government areas of Borno. To evaluate the impact of the stove distribution (December 2018), FAO undertook a household survey. Key findings included improved access to energy, high adoption of the stoves, and reduced (i) fuel use and costs, (ii) risk of physical harm to women and girls and (iii) health risks.

    Northeastern Nigeria: Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states
    Response overview (April 2022)

    The ongoing armed conflict in northeastern Nigeria as well as increased prices of food items and agricultural inputs have continued to negatively affect food security and nutrition in the region. Most farmers have reported production difficulties, mainly to access fertilizers, during the last rainy season, leading to reduced cultivated cropland area and harvests across five states, including in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe. The latest Cadre Harmonisé analysis (March 2022), which was conducted in 21 out of Nigeria's 36 states and in the Federal Capital Territory, indicated that about 19.5 million people are projected to experience crisis or worse levels of food insecurity (June–August 2022), if immediate actions are not taken. The provision of agricultural inputs to the most vulnerable households remains critical to ensure their food security and nutrition. FAO in collaboration with its partners has been implementing various interventions, including support for livestock and crop production, as well as value chain development and aquaculture to mitigate risks linked to seasonal crop failures and other climate-related shocks, to diversify households’ livelihoods and income sources. Beneficiaries are also provided with fuel-efficient stoves to mitigate risks linked to malnutrition, protection, deforestation, health and communal tensions over natural resources.
