During September 2018, the sector partners assisted more than 1.8 million individuals with food assistance (through in-kind distribution or cash transfers) in the three most affected north-east states of Nigeria. Against the 2018 HRP target for Strategic Objective 1 (Food Assistance) target, in September, sector partners have reached 49% of the monthly target (3.7 million individuals to be assisted monthly) compared to 51% achievement in the previous month. The largest gap identified still remains in Adamawa State, followed by Yobe State and Borno State. The needs remain significant at lower administrative/settlement levels, especially as the security situation remains fluid and displacement is ongoing. Provision of necessary emergency food assistance through the most appropriate modalities and harmonized targeting is critical to ensure availability of nutritious foods for the most vulnerable populations.
