Nigeria's Humanitarian Report
|Post date||Friday, 24 February, 2017 - 13:26|
In recent years, violent conflict and human suffering have left an indelible mark on north eastern Nigeria and parts of Niger, Chad and Cameroon in and around the Lake Chad Region. The unfolding humanitarian crisis was largely overlooked prior to 2016 even as Boko Haram raids and suicide bombings wreaked havoc. However, over the course of the year momentum built rapidly for a response that was Nigeria “owned and led” and the establishment of the Federal Government of Nigeria’s (FGN) Inter-Ministerial Task Force (IMTF) to create a platform to support FGN’s humanitarian response in the north-eastern region of the country was widely welcomed.
