During June 2021, about 2,040,082 of them were supported with Emergency Food Assistance, and 624,665 Agricultural Livelihoods Support. According to March 2021 Cadre Harmonisé (CH) projection period (June to August 2021), the number of food insecure population is 4.4 M. The June Inaccessible Areas Famine Monitoring System Bulletin led by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD) and supported by partners indicates four LGAs of Borno State at high risk of catastrophic levels of food insecurity (Bama, Gwoza, Kukawa and Magumeri,) and should be monitored closely considering elevated levels of food consumption gaps, malnutrition and extensive/unsustainable usage of emergency coping strategies.
The FMARD with support from partners is leading the expansion of the Cadre Harmonisé (CH) to 5 additional states outside the Northern (15 states) + FCT. These include including Edo, Cross-River, Lagos, Eungu, and Abia states.
The Sector continues to advocate for all actors to coordinate with the various sectors in joint implementation of various activities whenever feasible.
