Country overview

About 13 years of prolonged conflict plunged the Northeast Nigerian states of Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe (BAY) into chronic food insecurity.  As insecurity persists, the food insecurity situation is further compounded by the 30-year high inflation which significantly affects food commodity prices. The states face climate-related shocks such as floods and erratic rainfall which increase the vulnerability of the communities.  

The latest Cadre Harmonise (March 2024) projects that 4.8 million people will be facing acute food insecurity during the peak of the 2024 lean season, with about half a million people in the Emergency phase (CH Phase 4). The latest analysis also implies a second year in a row of increase of the number of acutely food insecure people in the 3 states, since 2022. 

Amidst the increased needs, food security partners face significant resource constraints in 2024. Partners
