The Cadre Harmonisé (CH) is the framework for consensual analysis of acute food and nutrition insecurity situations in the ECOWAS region. The October 2018 CH analysis covered sixteen Northern States of Nigeria namely: Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Borno, Gombe, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Niger, Plateau, Sokoto, Taraba, Yobe, Zamfara including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The analysis took food and nutrition security outcome indicators and relevant indicators and contributing factors namely, Hazards and Vulnerability, Food Availability, Access, Stability and Utilization including Water, and Sanitation into account. Compared to the previous round of October, 2017, the 2018 CH results show a decrease in the current situation of 703,862 (representing 22.3%) people in the critical phases (3 to 5) of food insecurity. However, for the three states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, the decrease is 851,519 (representing 33.2%) people in these critical phases.
