During January 2019, the sector partners assisted more than 1.4 million individuals with food assistance (through in-kind distribution or cash transfers) in the three most affected north-east states of Nigeria. The largest gap identified remains in Adamawa State, followed by Yobe State and Borno State. Depending on the timing of arrival, partners assisted the newly displaced persons with food assistance (covering a period from 30 days to up to two months), which was to act as a mitigating strategy against any security incidents during the country elections which could have impacted food distributions. Sustaining the 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, especially as we draw towards the lean season.
