During the reporting period of March 2019, a total of 1,547,714 unique people were supported with food security interventions in Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa states, 1.4 million of which were supported with food assistance and around 163,000 were with agriculture and livelihood assistance. Among them, around 24,177 individuals received both forms of assistance. The Sector continues to advocate for the urgent need for farmers and pastoralists to have safe and secure access to land for livelihoods, especially in anticipation of the rainy season agriculture campaigns. To enhance agriculture productivity, it is particularly critical to ensure that fertilizer movement is facilitated and farmers are able to access fertilizers to support productions.
