Following the alarming surge in insecurity in northern and eastern Borno State and parts of Yobe State, and the related spike in forced movements, a 90-day emergency response plan for the period January- April 2019 was developed by all sectors for an accelerated response to the critical humanitarian needs in the most affected areas.
The plan aims to meet the immediate life-saving humanitarian needs of an estimated 280,000 newly displaced people in 16 priority Local Government Areas, most of whom are living in deplorable conditions and urgently require humanitarian assistance. It also targets new arrivals who have fled from inaccessible areas.
The 90-day plan focuses on the following critical sectors: Protection, Health, Food Security and Livelihood, Nutrition, WASH, Education, and Emergency Shelter and Camp Coordination & Management.
The activities directly contribute to Strategic Objective 1 of the 2019-2021 Humanitarian Response Strategy: Save lives by providing timely and integrated multi-sector assistance and protection interventions to the most vulnerable.
The financial requirement of the 90-day plan is $53.2 million, which represents six per cent of the $848 million appeal for 2019, under the 2019-2021 Humanitarian Response Strategy. Some $11.2 million is currently available, leaving an immediate funding gap of $42 million.
Integration of the 90-day plan within existing programs and strategies will be considered as a means for enhanced overall service delivery.
The 90-day plan was prepared by the Inter-Sector Working Group (ISWG) in Maiduguri, as a collaborative effort of the members of these groups consisting of national partners, INGOs, and UN agencies. The ISWG will monitor the implementation of the plan, in collaboration with their counterparts. The document will be updated as necessary, based on assessed needs and on the fluidity of the situation.
