Now in its ninth year, ongoing military operations by all conflict parties in northeast Nigeria has led to massive displacement and undermined food security: 1.7 million persons remain internally displaced, human rights violations continue to be reported daily, and the food security situation remains extremely concerning as conflict continues to limit the amount of land under cultivation. According to the March 2018 Cadre Harmonisé (CH) findings the number of people facing acute food insecurity in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States has significantly reduced over the past year from 4.7 million (March to May 2017) to 2.6 million (October to December 2017) to 2.3 million (March to May 2018). The CH food and nutrition insecurity situation analysis also projected that the figure might increase to almost 3 million people during the lean season of June through September 2018.
