The food security situation in the North-East Nigeria has drastically deteriorated. Findings from the October 2019 Cadre Harmonize analysis indicate that 2.9 million people are food insecure (CH/IPC Phase 3 to 5) across BAY States. This marks a 72 percent increase from October to December 2018 post-harvest period findings. Around 3.8 million people in the BAY states are projected to be food insecure and considered to be facing crisis or emergency situations (CH Phase 3 or 4). The marked deterioration in the food security situation is linked to the upsurge of insecurity as evident in renewed conflict between the government and Non-State Armed Groups (NSAGs), which has led to a new wave of displacements, limited access to markets, farming and grazing land essential for livelihood opportunities. This situation has stretched remaining accessible communal resources, due to increased dependency from IDPs and returnees.
