Overall response continues to be adversely affected by limited access to local government areas (LGAs). Despite an improved security situation, logistics, transportation and trading activities are still hampered. To bring the overall humanitarian response closer to the affected people, a number of hubs are being established in LGA centres with five already operational (Bama, Banki, Dikwa, Gwoza, and Ngala). The presence of extension agents in the field remains limited in certain areas, and efforts should be made to build the capacity of local NGOs in agriculture.
