    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.

    During 2017 rainy season campaign, FAO was able to support 138 801 households (971 607 people) with seeds and fertilizers in Nigeria’s three northeastern States - Adamawa, Borno and Yobe. About 41 percent of beneficiaries were returnees, 38 percent were host families and 21 percent were IDPs. Overall, 47 percent of all beneficiaries were women, and 25 percent of beneficiary heads of households were women. Thanks to the support provided, a 21 percent and a 62 percent increase in productivity were recorded for cereal and vegetable production, respectively. Improved agricultural production in the northeastern Nigeria was recorded, particularly for maize, millet and rice, as well as a 10 percent increase in cultivated land compared with 2016. All food security indicators among FAO beneficiaries have also considerably improved. According to the latest Cadre Harmonisé analysis (November 2017), the food security situation in the country’s three northeastern States affected by the Boko Haram insurgency has significantly improved, with a 45 percent decrease in the number of people food insecure compared with March 2017.

    Lake Chad Basin crisis. Response strategy (2017–2019)
    Mitigating the impact of the crisis and strengthening the resilience and food security of conflict-affected communities
    2017
    Also available in:

    Boko Haram-related violence in northeastern Nigeria has spilled over to areas of neighbouring Sahelian countries in the Lake Chad Basin – specifically, Cameroon, Chad and the Niger – with devastating effects on food security and livelihoods. The violence has driven millions from their homes and hampered access to agricultural lands and assets, creating massive humanitarian needs in an area already characterized by food insecurity, poverty and environmental degradation. In 2016, the reinforcing o f the Multinational Joint Task Force operations enabled the recapturing of the main towns and many of the villages that were previously under the control of Boko Haram. Increased access to these areas, particularly in Borno State in northeastern Nigeria, has revealed an extensive and expanding humanitarian crisis. Despite the steady reduction in the areas under the control of Boko Haram, the violence has continued, focusing on suicide bombings and targeted attacks aiming at civilians and the sec urity forces, and resulting in loss of lives, destruction of infrastructure, disruption of trade and communications, and potentially destabilizing inter-community relations.
