The Insurgency in Northeast Nigeria is a protracted humanitarian crisis that has endured for nine years. Some 1.8 million people have been forcibly displaced from their homes, losing their possessions and means of livelihood in the process. Agricultural livelihoods have been devastated in various ways causing livestock losses; reducing access to fishing grounds and arable land hence limiting farming activities.
As a result, some 3.7 million people are projected to become food insecure and considered to be in crisis or emergency phases of food and nutrition insecurity (Cadre Harmonisé phase 3-5) during the period June to August 2018 in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe State
