Nigeria: Satellite imagery analysis 2023 Cropland change detection analysis in hard-to-reach areas

Nigeria is faced with different types of security incidents, almost in every region of the country, including attacks by armed groups and clashes between herders and farmers. According to ACLED, security incidents doubles between 2019 and 2022. During 2023, the highest fatalities were reported in Borno state (as of October 2023). The scale of significant insecurity expands to Benue, Niger, Zamfara, Katsina, Plateau, and Sokoto states and on a lesser scale across the rest of the states.

The analysis in 2023 covers hard-to-reach areas in 8 states: Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Kaduna, Katsina, Sokoto, Zamfara, and Niger states. This covers around 63,000 villages in 96 LGAs. The analysis aims at supporting food security interventions. This summary note presents the analysis results and overview of the post-harvest situation in 2023. The results provided a preliminary recommendation for Cadre Harmonisé (CH) to be considered as indicative in targeting activities for the emergency response during the 2024 lean season.
